WASHINGTON, July 15 (UPI) -- Federal officials announced Wednesday the takedown of the online forum Darkode, a clearinghouse for malware and stolen information.

An FBI posting said it infiltrated the 300-member, invitation-only platform two years ago, and gathered evidence against those "responsible for developing, distributing, facilitating, and supporting the most egregious and complex cybercriminal schemes." It credited an assortment of foreign and U.S. law enforcement organizations for help and cooperation, and noted 62 arrests around the world came from the investigation.
