Interpol Investigation Found 9,000 Infected Southeast Asia Servers

International police organization INTERPOL led a major investigation into cybercrime in Southeast Asia, along with seven other nations in the area.

After conducting a thorough dive into the Southeast Asia cyberspace, it was found that there were approximately 9,000 servers and 270 identified websites that were infected with malware.

These types of malware included financial institution targets, ransomware spreading, Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks and spam distribution.

Hong Kong police force’s cybercrime unit and Chairman of INTERPOL’s Eurasian cybercrime working group, Francis Chan commented about the importance of this effort to Reuters: “This operation helped participants identify and address various types of cybercrime which had not previously been tackled in their countries.”
