GameOver ZeuS criminals spied on Turkey, Georgia, Ukraine and OPEC

The criminals behind the GameOver ZeuS Botnet didn’t just steal $100 million from banks — they also spied on several countries on behalf of Russia, according to a Black Hat presentation Wednesday by an FBI agent and two other security experts.

These countries included Ukraine, Turkey, Georgia, and OPEC members, according to FBI special agent Elliott Peterson.

The gang, which called itself Business Club, had two leaders, one of whom was Evgeniy Bogachev who is still uncaught. The FBI is offering a $3 million reward for information leading to Bogachev’s arrest.
