FBI seize evil domain.
WASHINGTON (Rixstep) — The FBI have pounced on the evil site Callservice.biz that catered to phishers and others intent on rifling the bank accounts of Microsoft Windows users.
Two individuals from the Czech Republic and White Russia - Dmitry Naskovets and Sergey Semashko - are charged before a jury in New York with conspiracy to commit Windows fraud.
The FBI believe the defendants have used Google Talk to communicate and plan their nefarious activities.
The defendants offered their services to hackers in control of Windows PCs.
The hackers supplied the bank account information to Callservice who in turn would authorise the transactions by phone.
Surfing to the callservice.biz website today shows the cowboys have taken control.
