5 Romanian ransomware distributors arrested after police raid
« on: December 21, 2017, 02:40:40 PM »

Over the last week, police in Romania arrested five suspects for allegedly spreading CTB-Locker (Curve-Tor-Bitcoin Locker or Citroni) and Cerber ransomware, renting the malware from a ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS) outfit on the Dark Web.

According to Europol, police searched six houses in Romania during “Operation Bakovia”: a joint operation between Romanian and Dutch police and public prosecutors offices, the UK’s National Crime Agency, the FBI, Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre (EC3) and the Joint Cybercrime Action Taskforce (J-CAT).

The operation was named after Romanian poet George Bacovia.
