Summary : This presentation will detail many of the individuals responsible for GameOver Zeus and Cryptolocker, summarize the law enforcement investigation, and highlight the novel legal processes used to wrest control of the botnet from its operators.
GameOver Zeus represents one of the most complex, and successful, law enforcement operations against cyber crime to date. The talk will highlight extensive industry and government partnerships, the many international agencies that played a part, and discuss some of the methods used by private industry and law enforcement personnel to track and identify those responsible for the malware. The investigation resulted in the highest ever reward offered for a cyber criminal: $3,000,000 for Evgeniy Bogachev.
