Microsoft has just helped eliminate a spambot that could send some 1.5 billion spams every day. The Botnet Task Force, which Microsoft runs, got an injunction against the still unidentified botnet "herders," and the botnet domains are now shut down.
While the folks behind the botnet are still unknown, the botnet itself, W32.Waldedac, is fairly well-understood and hopefully will be gone for good.
