In the war on cyber crime, the FBI and Secret Service are working with private-sector partners and racking up significant wins. Among their recent successes: Prosecutions related to DDoS attacks, account takeover schemes and ATM cash-out scams.
Most recently, the FBI and numerous global partners took part in a coordinated operation to disrupt the botnet used to spread the malware known as Gameover Zeus and seize computer servers crucial to the ransomware known as CryptoLocker.
