Microsoft has announced that it is part of the team breaking up an international network of Internet robots. The discovered network, called Necurs, has infected more than nine million computers.

The network was responsible for multiple criminal frauds, she says BBC, Including stealing personal information and sending fake emails.

Cybercriminals use electronic networks to remotely take over devices connected to the Internet and install malware.

The program can be used to send spam, collect information about computer user activity, or delete information without notifying the owner.

Tom Burt, Microsoft’s vice president for customer security and trust, said the deletion was the result of eight years of planning and coordination with partners in 35 countries.

He wrote that the steps taken “will ensure that the criminals behind this network are no longer able to use the basic elements of their infrastructure to carry out cyber attacks.”
