From wire reports, TALLINN

Three cyber criminals accused of hacking, money laundering and fraud will be extradited to the U.S. , a court has heard.

Harju County Court in Estonia made the order against Dmitri Jegorov, Timur Gerassimenko and Konstantin Poltev following an FBI led operation to catch the criminals, reports ERR.

The trio, who were part of a larger criminal gang, were responsible for unleashing the DNS charger malware that infected around four million computers worldwide. The gang were able to steal 20 million dollars of internet advertising revenue. 

The Estonian government approved the ruling on Thursday, Nov. 14. A money laundering case continues against the accused. 

Meanwhile, two Latvians have appeared on the FBI's most wanted cyber criminals list.

Aleksey Belan, born in Riga, 1987, is suspected of hacking and information theft from three major American e-commerce companies during  January 2012 and April 2013.

After acquiring personal account information from countless users, Belan allegedly sold the databases.

The FBI has offered a bounty of USD 100,000 to anyone who can provide information regarding Belan’s whereabouts.

It's believed Belan could be in Russia, Greece, Latvia, the Maldives or Thailand at the moment. He was last spotted in Athens.

Peteris Sahurovs, born in Rezekne, 1989 also appears on the list. He is accused of online fraud and conspiracy with the intention of committing online fraud, as well as computer damaging.

Sahurovs was arrested in Rezekne in 2011. Nevertheless, he managed to go into hiding. Since then an international manhunt has been launched for him.

FBI offers a bounty of USD 50,000 for information regarding Sahurov’s whereabouts.
