Botnet

+ - MICROSOFT TO SHUT DOWN GLOBAL SPAM NETWORK->

Submitted by Kittenman
Kittenman (971447) writes "Microsoft has won court permission to close down one of the ten biggest spam networks (Botnets) in the Stats. Known as Waledac, it's responsible for emailing over 651 million pieces of spam to hotmail accounts (and no doubt millions more to others). It's interesting (to me) that Waledac is being closed by Microsoft — not by an ISP. Either way, it's good news."
