“TALLINN, Estonia (AP) – Estonia has approved the extradition of a suspected hacker to the United States where he is accused in a cyber fraud scheme that infected millions of computers worldwide, including those of NASA.
The government said Thursday that 26-year-old Anton Ivanov, an Estonian citizen, is facing charges including computer hacking and online fraud. The U.S. Justice Department had asked Estonia to extradite him.
Ivanov was arrested in November with five other Estonian citizens following a two-year investigation led by the FBI with assistance from the Estonian authorities. The others, including main suspect Vladimir Tsastsin, also face extradition. A Russian suspect in the case remains at large.”
