Two Suspects Arrested In International Zeus Malware Scam
Police have arrested two men in Wisconsin believed to be money mules in the international Zeus malware gang responsible for stealing millions of dollars from online bank accounts around the world.
Dorin Codreanu and Lilian Adam were arrested in Wisconsin, and will be brought to New York City to face bank fraud charges, the security firm Sophos reported today. The men, both from Moldova, are thought to be money mules employed to transfer money from bank accounts once they were corrupted with the infamous Zeus malware.
Zeus is a piece of malware used to steal bank account numbers from PCs. In early October, police in the U.S. and Eastern Europe arrested 48 people for their involvement in stealing nearly $9.5 million using the Zeus malware.
