Law enforcement authorities took down the computer networks operating two major pieces of malware this weekend, and in the process added a new name to the FBI’s most wanted list of cybercriminals: Russian hacker Evgeniy Bogachev. Bogachev, the authorities believe, was responsible for operating both viruses and using them to steal millions of dollars. One of the viruses, GameOver Zeus, was able to capture banking credentials and then authorize transfers from their accounts. The other, a ransomware trojan called CryptoLocker, encrypted the files of computers it infected and then demanded payment to decrypt them.
