Former Moscow 5 owner charged in "largest hacking and data breach scheme ever prosecuted in the United States"

For over a decade, Dmitry 'ddd1ms' Smilianets ran Moscow 5, a major force in pro Dota, Counter-Strike and League of Legends. But his extracurricular activities saw him arrested last July in a global operation by the FBI’s cyber-crime unit, and his teams disassembled in the months that followed.

US authorities yesterday revealed that Smilianets is among five Russian and Ukrainian nationals charged with running a sophisticated hacking network. The group stole at least 160 million debit and credit card numbers, and consequently hundreds of millions of dollars.

League of Legends Season 2 semifinals recap: Moscow 5 v Taipei Assassins and CLG EU v Azubu Frost

Comment
League of Legends Season 2 semifinals recap: Moscow 5 v Taipei Assassins and CLG EU v Azubu FrostThe much-delayed League of Legends Season 2 playoffs concluded last night at LA’s Galen Center, where CLG’s quarterfinal series against World Elite finally reached its end prior to a long semifinal round. With the main stage still under construction behind the casting booth, teams were forced to play from separate backstage locations without a live audience, an arrangement that may have lacked the grandeur of the LA Live outdoor arena, but which at least eliminated any chances for more of the cheating that troubled the playoffs’ earlier matches.

It was an odd night of uneven games and close-fought series, with each of the two semifinal matches going to three games.

Head of Russian e-sports team arrested on alleged cybercrimes charges

The head of Moscow 5, Dmitry Smilyanets, has been arrested by Dutch police, and while the charges being levelled at him haven’t been officially stated, Fontanka, the Russian website that broke the story (and spotted by Kotaku), claims that it was part of a concerted effort by the FBI to crack down on credit card fraud. Moscow 5 are one of the most successful Esports teams out there, with leading competitors in Counter Strike, League of Legends and Dota 2.

Updated: the fraud totalled $205,000,000 and his co-accused is the son of the head of the Russian Senate(!)
