Yesterday 17 people ages between 17-26 were arrested on charges stemming from alleged botnet

related activities, which resulted in $45 Million in damages.

The investigation was started in 2005, over the course of the two years that this network was under

investigation, the network took control of up to a million computers. When you figure the number of

computers hijacked, the amount of the damages, and the number of people they were able to

connect with this crime, this is a very impressive win for the Quebec police.

Hats off to the Quebec police and all the people involved in this investigation. ;-)
