International Law Enforcement Agencies Dismantle 'GozNym' Banking Malware Gang

International Law Enforcement Agencies Dismantle 'GozNym' Banking Malware Gang (Threat Actors)

GozNym banking malware is responsible for stealing nearly $100 million from over 41,000 victims across the globe for years. The United States has charged ten members of the GozNym criminal network, 5 of which who were arrested during several coordinated searches conducted in Bulgaria, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine. A member of the group who encrypted GozNym malware to avoid detection by anti-virus tools was arrested and is being prosecuted in the Republic of Moldova. The members of the group infected victims' computers with GozNym malware and captured their online banking login credentials, using which they fraudulently stole money and then launder funds using the U.S. and foreign bank accounts. The GozNym network was formed when these individuals were recruited from the online forums by the GozNym leader who controlled more than 41 000 victim computers infected with GozNym malware," the Europol said.
