Hackers Stole Millions from British Bank Accounts

The police are hunting hackers who stole money from British bank accounts worth at least £20m. The scale of the hack is outrageous, so the government was informed; in the United Kingdom, the agencies fighting the crime include the UK’s top secret electronic security center at GCHQ and the UK’s national Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT).


Across the Atlantic, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is involved; in Europe, Europol is also helping to investigate, with the help of law enforcement in Germany and Moldova where the attackers may originate from. Overall, the damage was done by the malware dubbed Dridex – it is already responsible for worldwide losses of $100m.

It is known that the cyber criminals have used malware to breach into people’s personal computers using the malware. Dridex records the login and password used to access online banking services and sends it back to the hackers.

The National Crime Agency suggests that it could be one of the worst cyber-attacks ever, while the public estimates of the losses are called “conservative”. The agency explained that the computers became infected with the virus when users received and opened documents in seemingly legitimate emails. According to the estimates, there could be thousands of infected computers in the United Kingdom alone, most of them running Windows. It seems that the malware doesn’t affect mobile devices.

The Internet users are recommended to best protect themselves by boosting their computer security. In the meantime, the investigation already led to at least one arrest last month. The US Department of Justice revealed its details, saying that a 30-year-old citizen of Moldova was charged in a 9-count indictment with criminal conspiracy, illegal computer access with intent to defraud, damaging a computer, wire fraud and bank fraud. The individual was arrested in late August in Cyprus, and the United States is seeking his extradition.

At the moment, attacks from the virus have stopped, but the law enforcement authorities fear that they may restart. According to the NCA, the malware in question, also dubbed Bugat and Cridex, was created by cyber criminals in Eastern Europe in order to steal money from individuals and businesses around the world. The malware targets global financial institutions and different payment systems.
