Operation Ghost Click

The FBI is seeking victims in a DNS Malware Investigation for the case of UNITED STATES v. VLADIMIR TSASTSIN, ET AL. Specifically, the FBI is seeking information from individuals, corporate entities and Internet Services Providers who believe that they have been victimized by malicious software related to the defendants.
