WASHINGTON, Nov. 5 (UPI) — The FBI has added five individuals to its cyber most wanted list for hacking into U.S. government and business systems, investigators said.

The suspects are:

– Farhan Arshad and Noor Aziz Uddin, both Pakistani nationals suspected of participating in an international hacking ring 2008-12 that caused more than $50 million in losses.

– Carlos Perez-Marala, who is suspected of committing multiple cyber crimes including running a fraudulent website in 2003 that promised users it would catch cheating lovers. Those who signed up for the fake service downloaded spyware that stole their personal information.

– Andrey Nabilevich Taame, a Syrian national who is suspected of running a malware ring that infected hundreds of thousands of computers 2007-11, including some 500,000 in the United States.
