A British court has sentenced four men to prison after they admitted they
used sophisticated trojan software to steal almost £600,000 from bank accounts
and send it to Eastern Europe.
London’s Southwark Crown Court on Friday imposed sentences of as much as 4
and a half years on the men. According to IDG News, they used a trojan known as
PSP2-BBB to stealthily monitor victims’ browsers. It inserted special fields
into banking pages that asked for sensitive information and then sent it to the
criminals when the user complied.
