SEC针对入侵EDGAR财务系统的黑客及机构发起指控

受到美国政府关门的“拖累”,SEC目前大部分时间处于休假状态。

但是,昨天SEC仍然对9名被告提起了指控,认为其参与入侵SEC旗下EDGAR财务数据系统或利用泄露信息非法交易获利。

据悉,收到指控的分别是1名乌克兰黑客,6位来自加利福尼亚州、乌克兰和俄罗斯的交易员,以及两家实体机构。他们分别是:

  1. Sungjin Cho (洛杉矶,加利福尼亚州)
  2. David Kwon(洛杉矶,加利福尼亚州)
  3. Igor Sabodakha(乌克兰)
  4. Victoria Vorochek(乌克兰)
  5. Ivan Olefir(乌克兰)
  6. Andrey Sarafanov(俄罗斯)
  7. Capyield Systems,Ltd。(Olefir拥有)
  8. Sprit Trade

SEC表示,从2016年5月到10月,这些人总共至少泄露并发布了157份收益报告,并由此非法获利至少410万美元。

 

Even while much of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is on furlough due to the US government shutdown, today the SEC announced charges against nine defendants for participating a hack into the SEC’s EDGAR system – the database that hosts all mandated securities filings. The ploy was to view sensitive financial data before it was published. The data was then to be used for illegal trading.

The SEC has charged a Ukrainian hacker and six individual traders in California, Ukraine, and Russia, plus two entities. The SEC added that the hacker and some of the traders were also involved in a similar scheme to hack into newswire services and trade on information that had not yet been released to the public.

The SEC alleges that after hacking the newswire services, Ukrainian hacker Oleksandr Ieremenko turned his attention to EDGAR and gained illicit access in 2016. After gaining access to nonpublic earnings results, the information was passed to individuals who would trade in the window between when the files were viewed and when the companies went public with their information.

The SEC said that in total the individuals traded off of at least 157 earnings releases from May to October 2016. The allegation is the perpetrators generated a minimum of $4.1 million in illegal profits.

The SEC alleges that the following traders received and traded on the hacked EDGAR information:

  1. Sungjin Cho, Los Angeles, California
  2. David Kwon, Los Angeles, California
  3. Igor Sabodakha, Ukraine
  4. Victoria Vorochek, Ukraine
  5. Ivan Olefir, Ukraine
  6. Andrey Sarafanov, Russia
  7. Capyield Systems, Ltd. (owned by Olefir)
  8. Spirit Trade Ltd.
