Google won the case related to the Glupteba bot that has infected many users around the world and has stole cryptocurrencies.
Google vs. Glupteba
With potentially important repercussions for upcoming cybercrime cases, Google has successfully defended its systems from a Russian group that had been using a network of bots to manipulate them.
The lawsuit concerns Glupteba, a Russian organization that had infiltrated millions of Windows devices via bot exploits.
The Glupteba system installed proxy components that would target Windows PCs and Internet of Things devices, mined bitcoins on infected machines, and stole user passwords. Most of the time, malware was spread via dubious download links for illegally obtained software.
