The FBI and US Department of Justice have just completed their biggest computer crime action, with the seizure of servers and domain names behind the Coreflood botnet.
So far five command and control servers have been identified and removed by law enforcement, as well as 29 domain names used by the command and control system behind the botnet. The servers have been replaced by systems which shut down the malware when infected PCs update themselves, and security firms will be updated on the latest Coreflood signature files.
