NCA in safety warning after millions stolen from UK bank accounts

From The Guardian –

“Law enforcement officials are hunting cyber attackers who have pulled off a series of internet “heists” on British bank accounts worth at least £20m.

British government ministers have been informed and the law enforcement effort involves the United Kingdom’s top secret electronic security centre at GCHQ, as well as the UK’s national Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT), which was set up in 2014.

In the US the FBI is involved, while in Europe the police agency Europol is also helping to investigate, as well as law enforcement in Germany and Moldova where it is believed the attackers may have links to.

The virus or malware, known as Dridex, may be responsible for worldwide losses of $100m so far.”
