We chatted with ChatGPT about Gery Shalon. The AI language model said that Shalon is a Georgian-born Israeli national who was the mastermind in a large-scale cybercrime case. He was arrested in 2015 and later extradited to the United States to face charges. His co-conspirators included Ziv Orenstein and Joshua Aaron. The three men were accused of working together to carry out several high-profile cyber crimes, including the 2014 data breach at JPMorgan Chase, one of the largest financial data breaches in U.S. history.

Correct Information

The U.S. prosecutors charged Gery Shalon with multiple counts of cybercrime, including hacking, securities fraud, illegal internet gambling, and money laundering. He was accused of leading a criminal organization that conducted several large-scale cyber attacks, including the 2014 data breach at JPMorgan Chase, one of the largest financial data breaches in history.

Shalon and his co-conspirators were accused of using financial information, stolen in the hack of JPMorgan Chase and other financial institutions and news agencies for various criminal activities, including insider trading, stock manipulation, and illegal online gambling. They were also accused of operating a massive spamming operation, sending billions of spam emails promoting illegal online pharmacies and other fraudulent schemes.

In 2016, Shalon pleaded guilty to multiple charges and agreed to cooperate with prosecutors. As part of the plea agreement, he was ordered to pay over $400 million in restitution.
