The UK’s National Crime Agency (NCA) is warning computer users to protect themselves against notorious banking malware Dridex, which it says may have cost the country up to £20 million already.

The agency announced yesterday that its National Cyber Crime Unit (NCCU) was working with the FBI to sinkhole the malware to render the botnet harmless, and remediate to safeguard victims.

It also claimed to have made one “significant arrest” after work involving Europol, the Met, GCHQ, CERT-UK, the German BKA, the Moldovan authorities and private sector partners.

UK computer users – especially those running Windows PCs – were urged to keep operating systems up to date and ensure they have AV installed.

Dridex typically arrives in the form of a legitimate looking email links or attachments and may already have infected thousands in the UK, the NCA warned.

CyberStreetWise and GetSafeOnline websites both have advice and tools designed to offer protection and clean-up, it added.
