FBI seeking one of the JPMorgan hackers

The FBI and U.S. Secret Service are looking for Joshua Samuel Aaron, one of the four people indicted by U.S. authorities this week for the JPMorgan Chase hack.

Authorities charged Aaron and his co-conspirators Gery Shalon, Anthony Murgio and Zic Orenstein in the Southern District of New York. They face 23 charges, including wire fraud, identity theft and money laundering.

Aaron was believed to be residing in Israel as of July. The FBI released a wanted posted stating he is believed to be in Eastern Europe. According to the FBI, Aaron “has ties to Maryland, Florida in the United States; Tel Aviv, Israel; Kiev, Ukraine; and Moscow, Russia.”

One of his co-defendants, Gery Shalon, was arrested by Israeli authorities in July. Shalon is currently in Israeli custody pending extradition. Prior to his arrest, he was a resident of Tel Aviv and Moscow.
