An international crime group which has siphoned off around USD 100 million from the accounts of over 40,000 people has been dismantled, the BBC reports.

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.
