HA NOI (VNS)— The Ha Noi Anti-Hi-tech Crime Police Agency has uncovered a group of people who were defrauding people through Yahoo chat.
The group sent links containing spyware to Yahoo chatters to steal their account passwords. After obtaining the passwords, they forged the users' IDs to cheat people in their friends list.
This group includes 18 students from central Quang Tri Province.
Police were alerted by reports from people whose IDs had been stolen.
The police ascertained that the fraudsters had been sending links that contained keylog or spyware to yahoo account owners.
After clicking on the link, the keylog programme automatically installed in the victim's computers and sent the keystrokes and a copy of the screen to the gang.-VNS
