German authorities arrested 10 people last week for computer intrusion
and financial crimes following an 18 month investigation into an
international phishing group.
The suspects, who varied in age from 20- to 36-years-old, allegedly
used a Trojan horse program to infect victims’ machines and log their
bank activity, racking up hundred of thousands of Euros in profits,
according to a Federal Criminal Investigation Office (BKA) press release (in German).
