“Unprecedented, international law enforcement operation”
Europol has helped coordinate an international law enforcement take-down of a cyber criminal network that targeted financial and businesses institutions, attacking some 41,000 victims with its GozNym malware.
Law enforcement in Bulgaria and Germany as well as Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine and the United States were involved in the bust.
Five were arrested in Bulgaria, Moldova, Russia and Ukraine.
The group targeted predominately financial institutions and businesses organisations, nabbing some $100,000 million.
A criminal Indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh, USA charged ten members of the GozNym criminal network with conspiracy to commit a range of crimes including money laundering.
