Joint efforts by law-enforcement agencies in the US and UK have crippled an eastern European gang behind the bank credential-stealing botnet known as Dridex.
On Tuesday, the FBI announced charges against Andrey Ghinkul, the alleged administrator of the Dridex botnet - also known as Bugat or Cridex - and revealed that it is seeking his extradition from Cyprus, where he was arrested in late August.
Dridex malware has been around for several years and is known for largely targeting Windows machines at companies in the UK and US, usually through phishing email with malware-laced Word attachments.
Another big hit to yet another big source of malware infection.
