Police Arrest Suspects In Zeus Trojan Bank Account Thefts [bbc.co.uk]
Nineteen people suspected of stealing millions from online bank accounts have been arrested by police.

Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Central e-Crime Unit raided a string of addresses across London on Monday.

The suspects are alleged to be part of a gang that has stolen at least 6m in the past three months.

Police say that the international plotters used malicious code to capture bank log-in details that were held on personal computers.

The Mets e-Crime unit actually seem to be pretty switched on these days. They seem to be sorting some difficult and high profile cases

I'd like to know if they managed to disable, or shut down the network of zombie computers. I suspect not, and the trojan is still sitting there ready for use on the zombie computers.
