Feds: 3 charged over 'Gozi' computer virus

The Gozi virus infected more than a million computers, including those at NASA.

NEW YORK  — Federal authorities in New York say they've brought criminal charges against three people in connection with a computer virus that infected more than a million computers worldwide.

The authorities said Wednesday that NASA computers were among those infected by what was labeled the "Gozi virus."

Authorities say they believe the three people who are charged created and distributed the virus.

It caused millions of dollars in losses by stealing online banking credentials, among other things.

A news conference on the charges was scheduled for Wednesday afternoon in New York.
