French cyber police intercepted Monero-mining botnet of over 850 000 PCs

French cyber police intercepted Monero-mining botnet of over 850 000 PCs

The French cyber police has intercepted and neutralized a Monero minimum virus that has infected over 850 000 Windows operating PCs in some 100 countries, but more predominantly in Central and South America.

The French authorities had acted on a signal that a server based in Paris is distributing a virus called Retadup, BBC reports.

The botnet, which was run from France, is estimated to have made millions of euro since 2016. The people behind it however are still at large.

“We managed to track down where the command server was, the control tower for the “botnet” network of infected computers,” C3N, France’s digital crime- fighting center, chief Jean- Dominique Nollet told France Inter radio. “People may not realize it, but 850,000 infected computers means massive firepower, enough to bring down all the (civilian) websites on the planet”, he added.

According to the French police the virus found its way through e-mails offering easy money or erotic pictures, as well as through infected USB drives.

Hackers were able to use the worm to take over PCs without owners realizing what is happening, to dig for Monero, extort money through ransomware, and even to steal data from hospitals in Israel as well as Israeli patients, the police report also said.

The FBI in the U.S. also assisted the French authorities in the investigation.

    The reason they change the platform’s name so often is because
    :
    1. Too many bad reviews online, so it’s hard to trick people;
    2. Being blacklisted by the banks, so transactions won’t work (unless they are using (China
    made terminals).
    3. Good way of erasing customers from their database and stealing their money. Exactly
    calculated everything looks legal but that’s only a back drop just one way to get away,
    escape and not be detected under noses of our authorities, Banks, Police, Interpol,
    Europol, ICC, NCA,FBI, CIA, MI6, SVR, Mossad. Why do authorities, banks, police have

    Retention:
    Senior account managers:
    This is the real boiler room, where the real scammers do their jobs, calling clients who deposited and
    tricking them into depositing larger amounts of money, so they can profit faster, opening ‘successful’
    trades for them, so it look real; the real magic is how they push people to install and use
    TEAM VIEWER/ ANYDESKTOP so they can log in to your bank account and see how much money a
    client has in his/her bank account, or how they steal money from their account without approval,
    passing all bank security layers!?
    Push you to open your mobile BankID. trying to trick information from your credit card. If a customer
    dares to say he/she doesn’t want to put more money into the account, they push and push and
    eventually, they tell him/her you’re on your own then, starting trading the initial deposit without
    customers being aware of it (therefore, the customers lose even the initial deposit).
    If you question too much the so – called account manager will soon dissaper and another take over with
    the same purpose to lurking more money from you. They are very polished and cynical!
    You was given access to a username/ password and was able to “trade” in only simulated account and
    deposit/ balance account with play money that was provided.
    Those accounts they provided for people looks real on their website but it’s only simulated trading
    accounts. Similar to a Video Game.
    The real money you have invest it’s already stolen from you and transferred between several shell/
    offshore companies through Romania, Bulgaria, Singapore, Marshall Island, Western Cape, bank
    accounts with low taxes, no regulations to USA.
    Under the noses of our authorities and banks. Transferred to Marshall Island in ( Oceania ), Durbanville
    in Western Cape ( South Africa), JP MORGAN CHASE BANK N.A. and other banks
