    Ukrainian police have arrested a 42-old-man on charges of infecting over 2,000 users across 50 countries with the DarkComet remote access trojan (RAT). The man was arrested this week after police executed a search warrant at his residence in the city of Lviv, in Western Ukraine. In a press release published today, Ukrainian police said they found a modified administrator panel for the DarkCommet RAT on the man's computer, along with the malware's installation files, and screenshots of infected victims' computers.
