Two alleged Zeus mules arrested in Wisconsin

Share this article:
Two Moldovan men were charged this week for their involvement with the Zeus trojan, which has been used to steal millions of dollars from U.S. bank accounts. Dorin Codreanu and Lilian Adam, both 21, are believed to have been "money mules,” responsible for transferring stolen funds to accomplices overseas. The pair was arrested in Wisconsin and is set to be transferred to New York to face charges of conspiracy to commit bank fraud, according to reports. The men are among the 37 individuals charged late last month in U.S. District Court in Manhattan for their role in the scheme. — AM
