Former eSports team owner charged in massive hacking

Dmitry “ddd1ms” Smilianets is one of 5 members of a group of Russian and Ukrainian nationals who have been charged with running an extremely sophisticated hacking network who managed to steal at least 160 million debit and credit card numbers, resulting in the loss of hundreds of millions of dollars according to Gamespot.com. Prior to his criminal activities, Dmitry owned Moscow 5, a clan with world-class League of Legends, Dota 2 and Counter-Strike teams. (Counter-Strike, Dota 2, League of Legends, PC)
