Russian Police Arrest Lurk Malware Gang Suspects

If you enjoy seeing malware suspects cuffed, on the floor, and in their underwear, have we got one for you!

Russian police just completed their second wave of arrests in a coordinated action to move on the Lurk malware gang, allegedly responsible for using a botnet to target corporate accounts at financial institutions and make off with 1.7 billion roubles (approximately $25 million).

Reportedly of 50 previously arrested, 19 have already been jailed. Isn't it amazing how quickly the legal process can work without due process?

Some 50 alleged gang members had already been arrested last summer during raids that led to the seizure of over 90 items of computer hardware, nearly 4.5 million roubles, and some arms.
