    Joint efforts by law-enforcement agencies in the US and UK have crippled an eastern European gang behind the bank credential-stealing botnet known as Dridex.

    On Tuesday, the FBI announced charges against Andrey Ghinkul, the alleged administrator of the Dridex botnet - also known as Bugat or Cridex - and revealed that it is seeking his extradition from Cyprus, where he was arrested in late August.
