Iranian cyber police have arrested the hackers who are suspected of breaching the computers of 90 gold and jewelry shops in the capital Tehran and stealing over $10,000.
According to the police, the hackers had accessed the data on the banking transactions of the gold shops.
Colonel Mohammad Mehdi Kakvan, the commander of Tehran cyber police, has said that,”The suspects used USB flash drives to break into the computer systems of the gold shops and used the keylogger malicious software, IRNA news agency reported.”
“The affected gold shops had failed to install and upgrade proper security software on the computers, which helped the hackers,” he added.
He described installing proper anti-virus software and keeping them upgraded as a major method to confront hackers from breaking into computers.
