Results of Operation b49 (Botnet Takedown)

Written by

On February 24th we announced the work we did on taking down Waledac – read Tim Cranton’s blog post called Cracking Down on Botnets.

Now it is time to look back and try to understand what we learned so far. Sudosecure traces the Waledac infection and gives a good view of new infections by the bot:

New IPs Discovered Per Day Last 30 Days (Domains)|New IPs Today: 0|Active IPs  Today: 0

But I guess to better understand what really happened and what the impact was, you should read the post by the Microsoft Malware Protection Center What we know (and learned) from the Waledac takedown

Really good reading
