Mastermind of botnet nabbed
Wednesday - 7/28/2010, 8:30am EDT
- International authorities have arrested a computer hacker they think is responsible for creating malicious computer code that infected 12 million computers. According to the FBI, a 23-year-old Slovenian identified as Iserdo was snagged in Maribor, Slovenia. This followed an investigation by Slovenian Police, aided by the FBI and Spanish authorities. The Mariposa botnet appeared back in December 2008. It infected the networks of more than half of the Fortune 1,000 companies and at least 40 major banks. The Slovenian arrest comes months after Spanish police broke up a massive cyber scam, arresting three alleged ringleaders who operated the Mariposa botnet. Iserdo has been released on bond.
