The United States have sentenced Aleksandr Adreevich Panin also known as "Gribodemon" and "Harderman" online (Russia) to 9 and 1/2 years in prison and Hanza bendellad also known as "Bx1" online (Algeria) to 15 years in prison.
 According to BBC; the two created a malware called the SpyEye virus package that is believed to have infected over 50 million computers. It is believed that the malware could have the possibility of stealing sensitive data or let hackers use infected machines to send spam.
 The US department of Justice said that the two of them used the SpyEye virus package in carrying out their operations, but also offered it as a malware kit to anyone who would love to pay for it. Also adding that most sophisticated version of SpyEye costs about $10,000.
 The US attorney, John Horn in a statement said "It is difficult to overstate the significance of this case, not only in terms of bringing two prolific computer hackers to justice, but also in disrupting and preventing immeasurable financial industry around the world".
 "The sentence that were imposed reflect the magnitude of the harm."
 the prosecutor, Steven Grimberg said that tackling SpyEye case helped the US law enforcement officers to shut down, a notorious malware marketplace.
