He's suing the parents of the kids he believes stole $1 million in bitcoin from him

Brian Krebs:

In 2018, [the plaintiff] was digitally mugged for approximately $1 million worth of bitcoin. After several years of working with investigators, [he] says he’s confident he has located two young men in the United Kingdom responsible for developing a clever piece of digital clipboard-stealing malware that let them siphon his crypto holdings. [He] is now suing each of their parents in a civil case that seeks to extract what their children would not return voluntarily.
