ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - International police recently busted two large computer-hacking networks, finding more than a million infected computers around the globe.

Could yours be next?

Marketwatch reporter Priya Anand found the bad guys track keystrokes from an unsuspecting person logging onto his or her bank’s website.

“That’s what they’re looking forto gain your credentials, your log-in information, so they could log in and potentially do bad things with your money,” Anand says.

Anand says computer security experts recommend downloading anti-malware programs and running tests to determine if your computer is infected.

There’s a link to some safe downloads at marketwatch.com.
