The Federal Bureau of Investigation has warned this week that over 300,000 users around the world could face Internet loss on July 9 due to a massive scam spanning several years.
In 2011, the FBI and Estonian authorities have arrested 6 locals on fraudulent activities after their 2 year sting operation dubbed Operation Ghost Click. The group was responsible for infecting computer systems globally with their malware called DNS Changer. The servers used by the criminals were confiscated but a Russian is still at large. According to Norton Medical and Scientific Research & Biotechnology, the swindlers have raked around USD 14 million from the scam involving online ads.
