If they managed to extract that amount of money, no wonder crooks will use this method to ill gotten gains.

US prosecutors say they have charged three men with creating and distributing a virus that infected more a million computers around the world.

They say the Gozi virus was used to access personal bank information and steal millions of dollars in 2005-11.

The suspects - a Russian, a Latvian and a Romanian - ran a "modern-day bank robbery ring, that required neither a gun or a mask", the prosecutors say.
