WASHINGTON, Nov. 5 (UPI) -- The FBI has added five individuals to its cyber most wanted list for hacking into U.S. government and business systems, investigators said.

The suspects are:

-- Farhan Arshad and Noor Aziz Uddin, both Pakistani nationals suspected of participating in an international hacking ring 2008-12 that caused more than $50 million in losses.

-- Carlos Perez-Marala, who is suspected of committing multiple cyber crimes including running a fraudulent website in 2003 that promised users it would catch cheating lovers. Those who signed up for the fake service downloaded spyware that stole their personal information.

-- Andrey Nabilevich Taame, a Syrian national who is suspected of running a malware ring that infected hundreds of thousands of computers 2007-11, including some 500,000 in the United States.

-- Alexsey Belan, a Russian national suspected of hacking into databases belonging to three U.S. companies and stealing sensitive company information and employees' identities.

Various cash rewards are being offered for information leading to the suspects' arrest.
