Crime Ring Member Accused of ID Theft, Behind Bars in San Diego; 40,000 victims  
A third suspected member of a Baja California-based crime ring that stole the personal information of about 40,000 people and used it to siphon funds from the victims' brokerage or bank accounts was behind bars in San Diego Tuesday following his capture south of the border. Acting on tips from the public, Mexican police arrested John Gordon Baden, 38, in Tijuana on Saturday, according to the FBI. He was turned over to U.S. authorities late Monday afternoon to face charges of conspiracy, wire fraud and computer hacking. Baden, along with co-defendants Jason Ray Bailey and Victor Alejandro Fernandez, allegedly filched loan applicants' names, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, addresses, asset listings, tax information and driver's license numbers by exploiting "vulnerabilities" in the servers of a U.S. mortgage company, according to the FBI. A federal indictment alleges that the suspects victimized people across the United States between July 2011 and August 2013, stealing millions of dollars from them.

Bulgaria National Security arrests Nigerian cyber fraudster
Bulgarian State Agency for National Security (SANS) has revealed a "large-scale cybercrime" and arrested a Nigerian national who had stolen money from bank accounts, the agency said Wednesday. SANS revealed that by using specialized electronic communications technology, the Nigerian has been remotely intercepting the Internet traffic of various users and illegally accessed mailboxes and e-banking, the statement said.
