U.S. charges nine with distributing Zeus malware

Quote:
The U.S. Department of Justice has brought charges against nine alleged members of a criminal organization that distributed the Zeus Trojan used to steal millions of dollars from bank accounts nationwide.

The DOJ’s charges, unsealed Friday in U.S. District Court for the District of Nebraska, include conspiracy to participate in racketeering activity, conspiracy to commit computer fraud and identity theft, aggravated identity theft, and multiple counts of bank fraud.

Two defendants, Yuriy Konovalenko, 31, and Yevhen Kulibaba, 36, are scheduled to be arraigned Friday at the federal courthouse in Lincoln, Nebraska, the DOJ said in a press release. The two were recently extradited from the U.K. after a federal grand jury charged them in August 2012.

This only sounds like a good thing.

MS handled this whole thing pretty poorly:

Maybe next time - if there ever is a next time - those sharing info with MS will get a signed Non Disclosure Agreement.
