Ukrainian authorities have sentenced two individuals —a man and a woman— to five years suspended sentences for allegedly launching DDoS attacks and running a DDoS extortion scheme.

The two are Inna Yatsenko, 32, and Gayk Grishkyan, 24, both residents of Cherkassy, Ukraine. The two were part of a larger hacker group, allegedly headed by Yatsenko, who was also the administrator of a local marriage agency.

According to a report published today, the two started their crime spree in 2015. Their first target was AnastasiaDate, an online dating website that connects men from North America to women from Eastern Europe. Yatsenko's agency had previously collaborated with AnastasiaDate for two years before they ended their collaboration.
