NCA and FBI disrupt global malware network

Internet users have a two-week opportunity to protect themselves from a malicious software that has hijacked more than 15,000 computers in the UK and caused more than $100m of losses globally.

The National Crime Agency said on Monday that it – in co-operation with the FBI and other foreign law enforcement agencies – has disrupted the GameOver Zeus botnet, a global network of infected computers that is designed to steal banking and other credentials.

The FBI lists symptoms found in computers infected by the GameOver Zeus malware. More information about how to remove the infection can be found at: https://www.us-cert.gov/ncas/alerts/TA14-150A
