With the passage of time, Kelihos botnet stole thousands of login credentials, sent tens of hundreds of spam emails, and installed malicious applications on infected computers.

Benczkowski, an assistant prosecutor, said in a statement "For more than 20 year, Peter Levashov was handling botnets that gave him access to critical information from his victims. We are grateful to the Spanish authorities for his previous arrest. Today's case demonstrates that our department will work with international partners to fight cybercrime, regardless of the criminal's physical location. "

Levashov claims that for some time he was working with Vladimir Putin, performing debts on his behalf. "I was looking for specific information about opposing opposition parties, and I handed them over to specific people when they asked for it."

The authorities described Levashov's online activity as "extensive". "Using Kelihos botnet has used thousands of computers from innocent citizens who did not know their computers were infected. He was also an active member of many online communities where stolen IDs, cards and illegal tools were exchanged, where an extensive history of buying and selling can be found.
