Farelf Posted August 16, 2008 Share Posted August 16, 2008 From the pages of ars technica Police nab Shadow creators, force botnet to commit suicide ...The arrests actually occurred several weeks ago, on July 29, but it's what happened afterwards that has made this situation interesting. Instead of simply shutting the botnet down, the High Crime Tech Unit took control of it. Once Shadow was secured, the police contacted Kaspersky Labs about providing a means to neutralize the malware. Kaspersky has made their fix public, and will also deploy the instructions over the Shadow botnet itself.Thanks to "Retired" at grc newgoups for bringing this one to light.
