"The Lure: The True Story of How the Department of Justice Brought Down Two of the World's Most Dangerous Cyber Criminals" provides a case study of a large, complex, and highly technical prosecution of two Russian hackers. The materials presented offer a wealth of information that can be used by IT professionals, business managers, and academics who wish to learn how to protect systems from abuse, and who wish to respond appropriately to network incidents. In addition to its value as a training tool, "The Lure" is also the true, riveting story of how two Russian hackers, who bragged that the laws in their country offered them no threat, and who mocked the inability of the FBI to catch them, were caught by an FBI lure designed to appeal to their egos and their greed. The story of the sting operation and subsequent trial is told for the first time here by the Department of Justice's attorney for the prosecution.
