    Russian Business Network: On the Fly - Who Runs the RBN


    (Page 4 of 4 )

    {RBN Logo}

    Little is known about the figure that runs the Russian Business Network. He goes by the name of Flyman; most researchers agree that he is probably around 24 years old, and the nephew of a Russian politician that may or may not have ties to one of the country's various crime syndicates.

    Other names the business runs under include:

    • RBNet
    • RBNetwork
    • RbusinessNetwork
    • iFrame Cash
    • SBT Telecom Network
    • Aki Mon Telecom
    • 4Stat
    • Eexhost
    • Rusouvenirs Ltd
    • TcS Network
    • Nevcon Ltd
    • Too Coin Software
    • 76Service
    • MalwareAlarm

    In addition to operating out of Saint Petersburg, it is believed that they also have bases/servers in Panama, the UK, Bahamas, and most recently China. It has been widely reported that the RBN has shut down its servers in Russia, but, as you will see in our next article, this isn't entirely true.

    That wraps up our brief summary of the Russian Business Network. In our next article we will discuss the specific methods of the RBN, explaining how the Mpack and other exploits work, showcasing a list of fake anti-malware/spyware sites, and other methods of the RBN.

    And in future articles in this series, we will discuss a wide array of cybercrimes and criminals, some related to the RBN, and some not. So be sure to check back often.

    Till then...
