another botnet the Mariposa takes the dust

The spainish police has arrested another gang of botnet leaders, the Mariposa. They had more than 800.000 stolen user credentials and controlled 13 million infected computers  (zombies) in 190 countries of which many were part of important confidential networks (perimeter defense ?)

If you want to look if you or your network had any connections you should find them if they have connected to the IP addresses and links that are mentioned in this detailed analysis

Make my day, take a botnet away

everyday one :)

Will someone clean this mess up or will those millions of computers stay vulnerable and infected, even if their control and command centers are gone ?
