10 arrested in cyber-crime probe

Ten people have been arrested, including at least one in Britain, as part of an investigation into international cyber-crime rings, the FBI said.

The gangs was stealing computer users' credit card, bank account and other personal information, the FBI added.

Individuals from Britain, the US, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia, New Zealand and Peru were arrested in an operation carried out with the assistance of Facebook and international law enforcement agencies.

The FBI said the operation identified cyber-crime rings that are linked to multiple variants of the Yahos malware, which is linked to more than 11 million compromised computer systems and over 850 million US dollars in losses through the so-called Butterfly botnet.

The FBI said Yahos targeted Facebook users from 2010 to October this year. Security systems were able to detect affected accounts and provide tools to remove the threats.
