The hackers are also accused of plundering accounts in PayPal, the payment-processing business of online auctioneer eBay Inc, and are suspected of threatening to attack the computer system of a U.S. company, the statement said.
The three are accused of using malware called W32.Toxbot, which they used to infect the machines. They also kept updating the virus to keep it one step ahead of anti-virus programs. More arrests are expected in this case.
