An update on the massive identity theft ring we discovered earlier. The FBI has responded to us and they are working on the case. It looks like they were working on the case when after we sent originally sent the data in, but we didn’t get any response from them at the time indicating they had received our data.

I will be providing more later as well as some (redacted) samples of what the files look like.

This was discovered by Patrick Jordan, a senior staff researcher here. Patrick is a veteran of spyware, and even he admits to never having seen something like this before. It’s pretty staggering.
