Justice Department takes down Russian cybercrime kingpin

The proprietor of the infamous "2pac" underground credit fraud marketplace, Roman Seleznev, was arrested earlier this week. He was picked up by federal agents while vacationing in Guam.

Seleznev was indicted on suspicions of his involvement in a string of restaurant hacks between 2009 and 2011.

Seleznev's credit marketplace, 2pac, was known for its customer service.

Known as "nCux" or "Bulba" in hacker circles, Seleznev will face 12 felony counts when he gets his day of court. What makes this arrest so important? Well, his arrest actually shut down his credit card marketplace for a month.
