Eight Arrested in Russia Over Carberp Trojan
The eight men are accused of using the malware to steal 60 million rubles from victims' bank accounts.
Russian police recently arrested eight men accused of using the Carberp Trojan and other malware to steal money from online banking customers.
"The men are suspected of being part of a Moscow-based gang that is targeting Russian nationals, and which has raked in 60m rubles (£1.3m) since October 2011," writes The Register's John Leyden. "The scheme uses malware to steal login credentials for victims' online banking accounts."
"Funds from an estimated 90 compromised accounts have been transferred to accounts under the control of the gang, prior to the withdrawal of funds from various Moscow ATMs, according to a statement by the Russian Interior Ministry," Leyden writes.
