Zombie Computers and the Cybercrime Center Protecting Users

There is something worse than the fictional brain-hungry zombies that appear in many of today’s TV shows and movies – a zombie computer. Instead of eating brains, they’ll gobble up funds from your bank account and rack up hefty credit card bills. According to "
Digital Detectives," posted on Microsoft.com by Jennifer Warnick, the hero of our story is the Cybercrime Center created by Microsoft.

Last year, 500 million zombie computers located in homes and offices in 90 countries came to life and ate up half a billion dollars over an 18-month time period from students, bankers, businesses, and other unknowing people. The botnet, known as Citadel, was stopped by a team of FBI agents, bank investigators, technology researchers, and Microsoft. The Cybercrime Center involves a collaboration between law enforcement agencies and technology experts from Microsoft as well as their partners and customers.

As noted in the article, cybercrimes cost the global economy nearly $500 billion annually. The goal of Microsoft’s Cybercrime Center is to develop the tools and techniques that can discover and stop cybercrimes, and to share that information with law enforcement all over the world. It’s nice to know that the Cybercrime Center is making the global internet a little safer.
