ZAPOROZHYE (CCRC) – Moscow: Officers of the Department on Fighting Economic Crimes of the Moscow Regional Police Department managed to expose a 22-year-old Moscow resident for allegedly distributing malicious software. She was detained while attempting to sell a CDROM with hacker software in the street of Mytishi, a town situated near Moscow.

This software is designed to easily obtain access to computer networks and data bases of banks. Besides, the CDROM contained worms designed to crack passwords to all kinds of encrypted information and to access, copy, delete, alternate, modify and/or suppress data stored in the computer without user's knowledge.

Malware was ascertained by examination of "Protecting Software Developers' Rights Legal Agency", said a reliable source in the Ministry of Internal Affairs. A criminal proceeding was instigated according to the offence violating part 1 article 273 (creation, use and distribution of computer malicious software). If sentenced, the offender faces up to 3 years behind the bars.
