Bulgarian man pleads not guilty in malware scheme

AP reports:

A Bulgarian man has pleaded not guilty to federal charges in Pennsylvania that he used sophisticated malware designed to steal banking credentials and other confidential information from infected computers.

Nikolov waived his detention hearing Thursday and will remain jailed until his trial.
