The activities of the group of cybercriminals were suppressed at the beginning of this year based on the results of the investigative and search activities of Department “K” of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs with the support of Group-IB specialists. A group of hackers, calling itself TipTop, has been operating since 2015. Using Trojans, attackers gained access to smartphones, and then transferred funds from attached bank cards and accounts.
Viruses disguised themselves as popular banking applications or instant messengers. The exact damage from the activities of the group is not determined. According to rough estimates, hackers could steal from 100 to 700 thousand rubles daily from victim cards – said a representative of Group-IB. At present, other members of the group have been detained, and the investigation is ongoing.
