        The British cyber security researcher who helped stop the spread of the WannaCry ransomware has been arrested in the US on charges that he assisted with the creation of malicious software targeting banks.        协助停止“想哭”(WannaCry)勒索软件传播的英国网络安全研究人员在美国被捕,被指控为制作针对银行的恶意软件提供了帮助。
        Marcus Hutchins, who goes by the name “Malwaretech” online, was arrested on six counts on Wednesday as he tried to fly home from Las Vegas, where he was attending the cyber security conferences Black Hat and Def Con.        周三,网名为“Malwaretech”的马库斯•哈钦斯(Marcus Hutchins)正要从拉斯维加斯乘飞机回家时,因六项指控遭逮捕。此前,他在拉斯维加斯参加“黑帽”(black hat)和Def Con两场网络安全会议。
        In the indictment, the US Department of Justice said Mr Hutchins created the Kronos banking Trojan, malicious software used in cyber attacks, and conspired with another defendant to sell the malware on internet forums for $2,000-$3,000. The indictment claims the malware was created and sold in 2014 and 2015.        美国司法部(DoJ)在起诉书中称,哈钦斯制作了Kronos银行木马——用于网络攻击的恶意软件——并与另一名被告共谋在网络论坛上以2000至3000美元的价格出售该软件。起诉书称,该软件是在2014年至2015年被制作和出售的。
        Kronos is a banking Trojan, a kind of malware disguised as legitimate software that is designed to gain access to confidential information stored or processed through online banking systems. Kronos was configured to take user credentials in countries including Canada, Germany and the United Kingdom.        Kronos银行木马是一种伪装成合法软件的恶意软件,为的是获取通过在线银行系统存储或处理的机密信息。使用Kronos可以拿到加拿大、德国和英国等国家的用户凭据。
        Mr Hutchins was hailed as a hero after he discovered a so-called “kill switch” in the WannaCry ransomware that spread through multinationals and the UK’s National Health Service in May. This stopped the spread of the malicious software, which was rendering computers unusable until victims paid a ransom.        在5月发现了在跨国公司和英国国家医疗服务体系(NHS)内蔓延的“想哭”勒索软件的一个所谓“自毁开关(kill switch)”之后,阻止了该软件的蔓延,哈钦斯也被称为英雄。这款勒索软件会锁住电脑中的文件,直至机主缴纳赎金。
