Submission + - Microsoft: Former Antivirus Firm Employe Behind Ke (krebsonsecurity.com)

tsu doh nimh writes: Microsoft told a U.S. district court in Virginia on Monday that it believes a Russian man named Andrey N. Sabelnikov is the operator of the spam botnet Kelihos, a cousin of the Waledac botnet. Microsoft said Sabelnikov was a former project manager at a company that provides firewall and antivirus software, but didn't name the firm. Brian Krebs has a story that indicates Sabelnikov was a project manager at Agnitum, an antivirus firm in St. Petersburg, and that Microsoft was tipped off to his alleged role after a researcher discovered links back to Sabelnikov's personal web site that was embedded in the Kelihos source code.
