Another Win for the Good Guys: Bye Bye Mega-D Botnet

I just read this great piece of news over at the Sunbelt Software Blog about a top 10 botnet. The botnet, called Mega-D, was said to have 250,000 bots which has been responsible for nearly 12 percent of the world spam. Wow, this is a great win.

The takedown was coordinated by a researcher at FireEye who working with others in the industry and Internet Service Providers, provided U.S. law enforcement with the information needed for the shut down.

Kudos to the FireEye team and others involved on this win! Keep fighting the good fight.
