The man called the invisible god of networks aka Fxmsp by the security firm Group-IB compromised more than 135 company networks and sold access to them in 44 countries over three-plus years, raking in at least $1.5 million, the firm says in a detailed document about him. The name is taken from a quote in an ad posted by a user Lampeduza to promote Fxmsp's services: "You will become the invisible god of networks."

I will never forgive him.
