Leon Buijs writes “Monday a 27 year old Armenian was arrested at request of the Dutch authorities. The Dutch police thinks he is the brain behind the infamous, 30 million infected computers large Bredolab network, that was taken down by their Team (in Dutch) High Crime. Bredolab was used to spread virii and spam via the Netherlands. While taking the botnet down at a Dutch ISP, the suspect did several attempts to regain control. When this didn’t work out, he did a DDoS attack on the ISP’s servers using a 220.000 computers botnet. However, this was also broken off by taking 3 servers offline that the Armanian used for this, in Paris.”
