Via ABC 7 News (Denver).
A Denver woman who didn't have adequate security on her home computer paid
Serry Winkler was visited by several officers with a search warrant who
demanded that she turn over her computer.
They were investigating a case of computer fraud. The woman's computer was
apparently infected by a bot or robot.
Investigators said someone hacked into Winkler's computer, stole her IP
address and used it with a stolen credit card to make fraudulent purchases
online. Police said they were trying to get to the bottom of it.
