Amin Shokohi is wanted for his alleged involvement in a conspiracy to conduct a coordinated campaign of distributed denial of service ("DDoS") attacks against the United States financial sector and other United States companies from 2011 through 2013. Shokohi was a computer hacker who worked for ITSecTeam, an Iranian information technology company. He allegedly helped build the botnet that was used to direct the DDoS attacks, and authored attack scripts and created malware that were used to engage in the attacks. Shokohi also allegedly obtained bot shells that were used in the DDoS attacks.
On January 21, 2016, a grand jury in the United States District Court, Southern District of New York, indicted Shokohi for his alleged involvement in the scheme and a federal warrant was issued for his arrest after he was charged with conspiracy to commit, and aid and abet, computer intrusion.
