The FBI is offering a $3 million reward for information on the bureau’s most wanted cyber criminal, Newsweek reports.

Evgeniy Mikhailovich Bogachev, 31, is accused of coordinating the GameOver ZeuS botnot, allowing him to collect personal and financial information from computers.

The FBI alleges the malware infected 1 million computers, resulting in more than $100 million in thefts worldwide.

Bogachev was indicted in Pennsylvania in May 2014 on conspiracy and money laundering charges.

“This was a worldwide infection, but it also had law enforcement worldwide working to combat it and bring to justice the criminal organisation behind it,” FBI assistant director Joseph Demarest said.

Bogachev’s last known address was in Russia.

Tom Fuentes, who also was a police officer, accused the protesters of a warped view of the world.

“They are saying all police are bad, everybody that’s been locked up is good and should be released right now, and basically advocating anarchy in a town that averages five black kids being murdered a week … and the whole crowd is buying it and cheering it on. And I just think it’s ridiculous and enough is enough.”
