Vienna Cybercrime Trials – Lenhoff’s Dark Empire legacy or who is Joachim Kalcher?
In early 2019, the Israeli Gal Barak and his German partner Uwe Lenhoff were arrested in the course of an international law enforcement action. They were accused by the authorities of operating an international cybercrime organization. Lenhoff allegedly committed suicide in his prison cell in Germany on July 6, 2020. Barak was sentenced to 4 years in prison on September 1, 2020. Dozens of Barak's and Lenhoff's co-conspirators are now waiting for their charges. The Austrian Joachim Kalcher allegedly was one of the late Lenhoff's partners.
