This week, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) issued a press
release announcing the unsealing of a criminal complaint in which
intelligence officers from the People’s Republic of China
(“PRC”) were charged with attempting to obstruct a
criminal prosecution in the Eastern District of New York. According
to the press release, Guochun He and Zheng Wang are alleged to have
orchestrated a scheme to steal files and information from the U.S.
Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York that are
related to an ongoing federal criminal investigation and
prosecution of a PRC-based global telecommunications company. In
furtherance of this scheme, Guochun He and Zheng Wang, among other
things, allegedly paid approximately $61,000 in bitcoin as a bribe
to a U.S. government employee who worked as a double agent for the
FBI and the PRC.

Another recent DOJ press release announced an indictment
charging a defendant for his alleged involvement with Raccoon
Infostealer, an international cybercrime operation that used
malware to infect millions of computers globally. According to the
press release, the defendant conspired to use Raccoon Infostealer
as malware as a service or MaaS that enabled users to steal data
from their victims for approximately $200 per month in
cryptocurrency. The DOJ press release noted that the FBI has
created a website, raccoon.ic3.gov, “where anyone can input
their email address to determine whether it is contained within the
U.S. government’s repository of Raccoon Infostealer stolen
data.”
