The Federal Bureau of Investigation has released a new report which clearly states that they are not done with their raid on Blackshades hackers. The FBI, Europol and other agencies combined their strenghts and intelligence in a global crackdown on Blackshades RAT buyers. The results were shocking, the government agencies arrested hundreds of people and they collected thousands of harddrives. The FBI has released a report which urges possible victims of the RAT to check their computers on BlackShades RAT signals.

The FBI warns that the malware affects Microsoft Windows operating systems. They ask the readers to control their systems using the BlackShades RAT checklist. If the user finds a BlackShades RAT file, then they can upload the proof to the FBI. The FBI encourages everyone to submit a complaint to the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center. The complaint has to have the tag ‘BlackShades malware’.
