More 2008 Fbi Botnet Arrests

As predicted in an earlier post, the slow cooker has been heating it up. Several years of the Fbi’s efforts are resulting in more 2008 arrests related to botnets and cybercrime. Eleven people are indicted in this case, involving spam and a “pump and dump” scheme for thinly traded Chinese penny stocks:

“The charges arose after a three-year investigation – led by agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, with assistance from the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the Internal Revenue Service – revealed a sophisticated and extensive spamming operation that, as alleged in the indictment, largely focused on running a stock “pump and dump” scheme, whereby the defendants sent spam touting thinly traded Chinese penny stocks, drove up their stock price, and reaped profits by selling the stock at artificially inflated prices.”

The fraudulent spam messages were sent off of zombies around the world. Keep those bots off of your Windows systems.

Eight of those individuals charged are being sought, including a Peter Severa of Russia. This individual is one of the longest running spam operators on the internet. You can see a description of this individual on spamhaus:
One of the longest operating criminal spam-lords on the internet. Works with many other Easter Euro and US based botnet spammers.”

Maybe, just maybe, there will be a day when this sort of garbage doesn’t show up in my email:
