Score one for the good guys this week as the The FBI and US Department of Justice unleash a powerful and quick take down of the “Coreflood” botnet.
Coreflood was a massive international network of more than two million infected computers; computers that were used to empty bank accounts, score sensitive corporate data and steal untold financial data. This is a huge victory as this particular botnet has been in operation for 10 years.

Chicken Little was walking down the path to another regular day when PLOP something hit him on the head. “Woah, what the heck was that”, said Chicken Little. He looked on the ground and saw…nothing. He looked in the air and saw… clouds. “Oh No”, cried Chicken Little, “the clouds are falling, the clouds are falling”.
