Sberbank's confessed data thief is transferred from jail to house arrest
The Volgograd Regional Court has transferred Anton Buturlakin — the “National Collection Service” employee charged with stealing Sberbank clients’ personal data — from a pretrial detention center to house arrest, according to the news agency Interfax. Sberbank’s data leak was first reported on October 24, the same day that police announced the capture of a suspect in the case.
Buturlakin later signed a confession and expressed remorse for his actions. According to investigators, he sold the stolen database online for 40,000 rubles ($630), and faces up to five years in prison for illegally obtaining and disclosing confidential banking information.
