Keynote address: The m00p investigation: law enforcement and the anti-virus industry working in partnership presented at Virus Bulletin 2011

by Bob Burls (Police central e-crime unit),


Summary : "This presentation is a case study into an investigation against an
international malware writing group. The investigation spanned over
several years, and included law enforcement from the United Kingdom and
Finland. The investigation resulted in arrests in multiple jurisdictions
and successful convictions. The authors of the presentation were
involved in the investigation from the beginning to the end. The 'm00p'
group used several advanced methods in their attacks, and even had a
front-end company to disguise the criminal activity. Bob Burls and Mikko Hypponen
will detail the investigation from both the law enforcement and
anti-virus industry perspective."
