Naming Names: Yaroslav Vasinski Indicted

The Department of Justice Monday announced legal actions against two individuals allegedly involved with the Kaseya ransomware attack.

The DOJ on August 11 indicted Ukrainian national Yaroslav Vasinski, who is also known as “Robotnik.” That indictment was previously under seal.

Vasinski was charged with conspiring to “commit intentional damage to protected computers and to extort in relation to that damage, causing intentional damage to protected computers, and conspiring to commit money laundering,” Garland said.

According to the indictment, Vasinski and his co-conspirators co-authored REvil software and installed it on victims‘ computers, including during the July 2 attack through Kaseya.

Vasinski on October 8 crossed the border from Ukraine to Poland where Polish authorities arrested him upon U.S. request. The U.S. has requested that Vasinski be extradited to the U.S.

“Vasinski‘s arrest demonstrates how quickly we will act, alongside our international partners to identify, locate, and apprehend alleged cyber criminals, no matter where they are located,” Garland said.
