2015/07/22

New York Times - (International) U.S. and Israeli law enforcement officials arrested 4 suspects in Florida and Israel July 21 and are searching for another in connection to an illegal Bitcoin money laundering operation and a separate pump-and-dump securities manipulation scheme that allegedly netted millions of dollars, which the suspects allegedly funneled through international shell companies. Authorities are investigating the suspects' potential roles in a 2014 cyber-attack on JPMorgan Chase that compromised the contact information of 83 million customers.
