Microsoft disables Russian hacker control

American multinational technology company Microsoft Corp. said on Tuesday it had disabled over 90% of the machines used by Russian cybercriminals who intended to hack the United States presidential election.

Microsoft Corporate Vice President Tom Burt stated that the company has "taken down most of their infrastructure. Their ability to go and infect targets has been significantly reduced."

The criminals in charge of TrickBot, the Malwarebytes' detection name for a banking Trojan targeting Windows machines, have infected more than 1 million personal computers, including many inside local governments, according to cybersecurity professionals.
