A Win for Defenders!

It’s nice to hear that a botnet was actually taken down for once. Here is some good news worth spreading. Law enforcement agencies and cyber crime communities from around the world took part in destroying the Simda botnet that had a hold of 770,000 PCs. SQL injections again played a major role and typical areas of infection remained Oracle Java, Adobe Flash, and Microsoft Silverlight.

Also as a part of this article is a link to find out if your IP Address was a part of the botnet, courtesy of Kaspersky. Check it out here.
