FBI Wanted ‘Super Hacker’, Yevgeniy Polyanin, Linked To Ransomware Gang REvil Unmasked

One of the most wanted men on the FBI’s list of the men linked to ransomware gang REvil, Yevgeniy Polyanin, has been unmasked.

Yevgeniy Polyanin is reportedly living freely and lavishly in Siberia city with no sign of the Russian authorities working on detaining him for ‘using ransomware to fleece millions of dollars’.

The Daily Mail details how they unmasked the FBI’s most wanted hacker Yevgeniy Polyanin:

DailyMail.com tracked suspected super-hacker Yevgeniy Polyanin, 28, to a chic $380,000 (USD) home in Barnaul where he was seen driving his $74,000 Toyota Land Cruiser 200, evidently feeling untouchable.

His wife Sofia, 28, openly runs an upscale social media baking business – including racy hen party cupcakes decorated with male genitalia – while he is accused by the US authorities of extorting millions of dollars from American businesses. The pair enjoy a luxury lifestyle, with helicopter rides to the nearby scenic Altai Mountains. A second car in the suspected cybercriminal’s garage is a BMW, worth up to $108,000. Polyanin was this month accused by the FBI of ‘involvement in ransomware attacks and money laundering activities.’

He is alleged to be an affiliate of the REvil/Sodinokibi gang and the FBI claim to have seized from him $6.1 million in ill-gotten funds, while a reward of up to $5 million was offered for information leading to his arrest. He is also seen as a key ‘test case’ of President Joe Biden’s demand that Vladimir Putin should cooperate with him in cracking down on suspected cybercriminals. Yet there seems little prospect of this since Polyanin’s relatives and neighbors stress they have had no contacts over the FBI allegations from the Russian FSB counter-intelligence service or police.

Russia has been accused by the West of turning a blind eye to hackers targeting the US and Europe from its territory. DailyMail.com has reached out to the FBI to determine what will happen to the suspect now that he has been found. Polyanin and his wife have spent recent days dodging reporters and cutting phone calls while living at his gated home, ‘elite’ residential complex Nevsky in Russia’s mountainous Altai region, where his curtains remained almost permanently closed.
