Takedown of Kelihos botnet gets chronicled

Posted on Friday, September 30 2011 @ 15:17:03 CEST by


Kaspersky Labs news service Threatpost reveals how the Kelihos botnet was taken down, you can read it over here.
Earlier this week, Microsoft released aTillmann Wernern announcement about the disruption of a dangerous botnet that was responsible for spam messages, theft of sensitive financial information, pump-and-dump stock scams and distributed denial-of-service attacks.

Kaspersky Lab played a critical role in this botnet takedown initiative, leading the way to reverse-engineer the bot malware, crack the communication protocol and develop tools to attack the peer-to-peer infrastructure. We worked closely with Microsoft’s Digital Crimes Unit (DCU), sharing the relevant information and providing them with access to our live botnet tracking system.
