Each time I take a look at the cybercrime news section on Google News, I see that thousands and even millions of Dollars are stolen by cybercriminals.
The cybercriminals use smart techniques and malware to obtain the financial assets, but it keeps surprising me how easy it is for the cybercriminals and hackers to obtain information once they are inside.
The million dollar malware
A couple of weeks ago, the FBI published an 3 million dollar reward for the person which would provide information that would lead to the arrest of Evgeniy Bogachev. Evgeniy Bogachev is alleged to be the mastermind behind the GameOver Zeus malware.
The GameOver Zeus malware is the million dollar malware which is used by cybercriminals to steal millions of dollars and euro’s. The cybercriminals use the Zeus malware to force the victim to transfer ransom or financial data.
