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.
