FBI Boston impacted these tools when we leveraged our international partnerships to dismantle a sophisticated cybercrime malware service known as Warzone RAT. This was a service that criminals bought and utilized to infect the computer systems of victims here in Massachusetts, across the country, and around the world.

Our investigation led to indictments against two individuals, one in Malta and the other in Nigeria, who we believe were involved in selling and supporting Warzone RAT and other malware. The Nigerian has already been convicted and is serving a three-year prison sentence in Nigeria. We also seized several domains to prevent further victimization.

In closing, I look forward to today’s conference and getting the opportunity to catch up with you throughout the day. One of the many benefits in all of us coming together here for the BCCS is the ability to network and collaborate with one another. Partnerships have always been a priority in the teams I have led throughout my career. With the increasing threats posed by cyber actors, I can’t stress enough the importance of partnership. I have several members of my team here who are always willing to assist and collaborate with all of you. 

Now it is my pleasure to hand it over to the dean of BC’s Law School, Odette Lienau.
