British Law enforcement and the FBI are actively looking for the individuals that created the largest botnet, reports World Watch from CBS News.
London’s Metropolitan Police department confirmed to CBS News on Wednesday that their e-crime unit was investigating a botnet created by Ukrainian hackers. The Met would not say what other agencies they are working with, but they do often work with other agencies on cases involving international cyber-crime, including the FBI.
CBSNews.com partner CNET reported Tuesday that Ophir Shalitin, Finjan’s marketing director, said in an interview on the eve of the RSA security conference that the gang had compromised computers in 77 government-owned domains in the U.S. and elsewhere.
