Latvia extradites alleged virus creator to US

Latvia’s Supreme Court has approved the extradition of Russian national Denis Calovski, 27, to the US on charges of creating and spreading a computer virus that allowed hackers to steal tens of millions of dollars.

160 NASA computers were among 40,000 infected by what was called the Gozi virus.

The remaining suspects, Romanian national Mihai Ionut Paunescu and Russia’s Nikita Kuzmin have also been detained and are now in custody.
