Included in the defendants were a Ukranian hacker and six individual traders in California, Ukraine, and Russia. There were also two entities charged. The hacker and some of the traders were involved in a similar scheme to hack into newswire services to trade on information not yet publicly available. As a result of those activities, the hacker and his conspirators were charged in 2015.
