The FBI, the British National Crime Agency (NCA) and Europol are working to disrupt a botnet that criminals use to steal 30 million online bank accounts. It involves the Dridex-malware, where the US government yesterday for warned.

Through the malware managed to infect criminals in Moldova and other countries, computers and then steal data for Internet banking. In this way could then money from online accounts are stolen. One of the managers of the Dridex botnet has now sued. It is a 30 year old man from Moldova who in late August was arrested in Cyprus.

The various investigative agencies are now working for the malware to 'sink holes' so that the criminals behind the botnet can no longer control the infected computers. This involves a continuous campaign directed against different versions of Dridex and the criminals behind it, says Europol.
