Online gambling under investigation by US Security

As reported by the publication The Register this week, it was unveiled at the current “Cybercrime in Betting and Gaming” meeting in London that security services are executing possible terrorism funding investigations including online gambling.

It seems that security service operatives are carrying out 23 continuing investigations into the exploitation of gambling websites to finance intimidation.

The disclosures come following the conviction of a man nicknamed as the “godfather of cyber-terrorism for al-Qaida” and 2 of his coworkers 2 years ago in which 3 men were charged with inciting murder through website catchphrases.

Tariq al-Daour, Waseem Mughal and Younes Tsouli allegedly utilized Windows-based Trojans to embezzle information including credit card numbers, and then laundered the cash utilizing Internet gambling websites.
