Gwen Ackerman and Alisa Odenheimer of Bloomberg
report that the Jerusalem District Court and the Israeli Justice Ministry have approved the extradition of Ziv Orenstein
and Gery Shalon
, who are accused of hacking and securities fraud.
J.P. Morgan, Scottrade
, TD Ameritrade
, and Dow Jones
have all previously confirmed that they were victims of the alleged hacking conspiracy. And published reports have pointed to Fidelity as the unnamed "Victim-2" mentioned in the original indictment last year, which identifies Victm-2 as "one of the world's largest financial services corporations, providing mutual fund, online stock brokerage and other services, with headquarters in Boston, Massachusetts."
Fidelity previously declined to confirm or deny whether or not the alleged hackers victimized them, too. The way the indictment reads, "Victim-2" quickly fought off the hacks.
