CRTC executes warrant in malicious malware investigation

The CRTC has executed their second warrant under Canada’s anti-spam legislation at two locations in the Niagara region. The warrant was obtained as part of an ongoing investigation relating to the installation of malware based on a lead from FireEye Inc. (a cyber threat protection and forensics specialist).

“We are working to protect Canadians from online threats by pursuing those individuals and entities who violate Canada’s anti-spam legislation. We are grateful for the assistance that FireEye Inc. provided which led to the execution of this warrant, and we will continue to work closely with our domestic and international partners in the fight against cyber threats.”
