In what was described as the largest hacking scam in Canadian history, Quebec provincial police raided several homes across Quebec on Wednesday and arrested 16 people between the ages of 17 and 26.

The hacking network may have profited by as much as $45 million through the use of phishing sites set up on compromised computers. The majority of computers attacked by the network were in Poland and Brazil, but some PCs in Manitoba and the United States were also hacked, he said. Several government computers were also compromised, but investigators will not say in which country.
