On June 2, 2014, the Department of Justice and the FBI announced a multinational effort to disrupt the GameOver Zeus botnet, believed to be responsible for the theft of millions of dollars from businesses and consumers in the U.S. and around the world.
Also announced was the unsealing of criminal charges in Pittsburgh and Omaha against alleged botnet administrator Evgeniy Mikhailovich Bogachev of Anapa, Russian Federation.
Could Your Computer Be Infected?
- Your computer system operates very slowly.
- Your cursor moves erratically with no input from you.
- You notice unauthorized logins to your bank accounts or unauthorized money transfers.
- Text-based chat windows appear on your computer’s desktop unexpectedly.
- Your computer files lock up and a ransom demand is made to unlock files.
If you notice one or more of these actions on your computer, you may have been infected with the GameOver Zeus malware. The Department of Homeland Security’s Computer Emergency Readiness Team (CERT) has posted additional information on its website about GameOver Zeus, including the specific operating systems impacted, an overview of the malware, and actions you can take to remove the infection from your computer. Visit www.us-cert.gov/gameoverzeus for details.
GameOver Zeus is an extremely sophisticated type of malware designed specifically to steal banking and other credentials from the computers it infects. It’s predominately spread through spam e-mail or phishing messages.
Unbeknownst to their rightful owners, the infected computers become part of a global network of compromised computers known as a botnet—a powerful online tool that cyber criminals can use for their own nefarious purposes.
In the case of GameOver Zeus, its primary purpose is to capture banking credentials from infected computers, then use those credentials to initiate or re-direct wire transfers to accounts overseas that are controlled by the criminals. Losses attributable to GameOver Zeus are estimated to be more than $100 million.

NEW FRAUD in Mumbai ...
Given below is happend to someone
He has narrted this in his own words :-
"I received a call from someone claiming that he was from my mobile Service provider
He asked me to shutdown my phone for 2 hours for 3G update to take place.
As I was rushing for a meeting,
I did not question,
but just shut down my cell phone.
After 45 minutes?
I felt very suspicious, Since the caller did not even introduce his name.
I quickly turned on my cell phone and saw several missed calls from my family members.
And, the others were from the number that had called me earlier.
I called my parents
I was shocked that they sounded very worried asking me whether...
I am safe.
My parents told me that they had received a call from someone claiming that they had me with them ,
and asking for money to let me free.
The call was so real and my parents even heard 'My Voice'
Crying out loud asking for help.
My father was at the bank waiting for next call to proceed for money transfer.
I told my parents that,
I am safe and asked them to lodge a police report.
Right after that I received another call from the guy asking me to shutdown my cell phone for another 1 hour which I refused to do and hung up.
They kept calling my cell phone until the battery had run down.
I, myself lodged a police report and I was informed by the officer that there were many such scams reported.
MOST of the cases reported that the victim had already transferred the money...!
It is impossible to get back the money.
Be careful as this kind of scam might happen to any of us...!!!
Those guys are so professional and very convincing during calls.
If you are asked to
shut down your cell phone for updates by the service provider,
