Avast Takes Down Retadup botnet

Cough Cough Hack!

It is nice when you see the bad guy actually caught for once. Especially one who brags about infecting almost a million computers.

Due to that bragging Avast was able to pinpoint the criminal through a phone number, Facebook, and an email address.

The program the guy made didn’t just do ransomware but also cryptojacking and information stealing also. Nasty stuff.

He was raking in over a million a month. What use is that when you are in jail though after being caught?

Crime does not pay. Especially when you ruin a lot of peoples lives like this guy did.
