Malware Morons Mostly Off the Hook
A company out of the Czech Republic that may have inadvertently hosted a botnet group got busted -- at least according information gathered by Microsoft forensics. Now the company called Dotfree has agreed to a civil settlement.
The deal calls for Dofree to give up control of all domains and subdomains used by the botnetters. There doesn't appear to be a monetary penalty attached that would cost Dotfree and arm and a leg bone.
Now Dotfree is committed to investigating just what happened so it won't occur again.
