WASHINGTON - Accused Russian hacker Peter Levashov has been extradited from Spain and will be arraigned later on Friday in the United States, the US Justice Department said in a statement.

US prosecutors have accused Levashov of running the Kelihos botnet, a network of more than 100,000 infected devices used by cyber criminals to distribute viruses, ransomware, phishing emails and other spam attacks.
