French 'Cybercops' Dismantle Pirate Computer Network

French 'cybercops' dismantle pirate computer network

A team of French police dubbed "cybergendarmes" has destroyed a virus that infected more than 850,000 computers worldwide, authorities say.

The network of infected computers, known as a botnet, was controlled from France and is thought to have made millions of euros from fraud.

After a tip-off, the French team located and dismantled the pirate server in the Paris region.

Then they succeeded in disinfecting the computers around the globe.
What damage was done?

France's C3N digital crime-fighting centre was alerted in the spring by anti-virus company Avast to the possible existence of a private server that had apparently sent a virus called Retadup to hundreds of thousands of Windows-operating computers, in over 100 countries but mainly in Central and South America.

Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.

Psalm 100: 4


"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
