Brazilian police on Friday dismantled a hacking ring, which had stolen more than 10 million reals (5 million U.S. dollars), one of the biggest cases in the country.

In "Operation Nerd II", police arrested 29 people, 25 of them in the southern state of Rio Grande do Sul.

The ring leader was nabbed in the southern state of Parana. The suspect had once been detained in 2005, when police launched a similar operation to battle hacking in Rio Grande do Sul.

According to investigators, the gang sent spam e-mails under the name of entities like the Electoral Court or the Credit Protection Service, in order to get information from clients of banks and target their systems.
