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.
