According to the United States Department of Justice report, the cybercriminals behind the GameOver Zeus have stolen more than $100 million.

Evgeniy Mikhailovich Bogachev, 30-year-old Russian, has been charged for his alleged role as an admin of the Gameover Zeus botnet.

Cryptolocker is a particularly nasty piece of malware that encrypts all files on the infected machine, then demands a ransom to unlock it.  If the files are important one and no backup is there, victims don’t have choice other than paying ransom to get a key to unlock.
