The U.S. government says Volgmer has been utilized to access PC frameworks since no less than 2013. When Volgmer builds up a nearness in a frameworks, it can accumulate framework data, refresh benefit registry keys, download and transfer documents, execute orders and end procedures and rundown registries, says the FBI and Department of Homeland Security.
