Another Bot Bites the Dust?

Remember Microsoft’s action against 277 Waledac domains last week? Well, that’s one way of going after a botnet…

Another way of shutting down a botnet? Arrest the botmasters!

Three Spanish citizens have been arrested for running the “Mariposa” botnet. The three reportedly have no criminal records and have limited hacking skills. Mariposa is a Butterfly Kit based botnet, and the kit is no longer for sale.

Details are available from the BBC and The Register. Kudos to those involved in the arrests.
