Botnet Infected User's PC Results In Armed Police Raid

Via ABC 7 News (Denver).

A Denver woman who didn't have adequate security on her home computer paid the price.

Serry Winkler was visited by several officers with a search warrant who demanded that she turn over her computer.

They were investigating a case of computer fraud. The woman's computer was apparently infected by a bot or robot.

Investigators said someone hacked into Winkler's computer, stole her IP address and used it with a stolen credit card to make fraudulent purchases online. Police said they were trying to get to the bottom of it.
