The Europol operation was conducted on the territory of Bulgaria, USA, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. The gang infected the computers of its victims with the GozNym virus which records online banking data and access to accounts. One of the gang members was extradited to USA from Bulgaria to be put on trial.
