Now we have to find the Main source of the IP to Russia in this defunctioned botnet in order to find out culprit, and chances are, they may even find a good 4 to 6 major spam gangs Connected to this event including 2 US based ones,

From the US,

Canadian Pharmacy
Michael Lindsay / iMedia Networks

And from Russia where this botnet all started,

Leo Kuvayev / BadCow
Alex Blood / Alexander Mosh / AlekseyB / Alex Polyakov
Ruslan Ibragimov / send-safe.com
Yambo Financials
Russian Business Network(remaining members)

Once that happens our spam would be as low as back in the late 90's, but then we would start seeing software and hardware damaging worms and viruses likely to be on the rise due to the capure of these 7, just like with the W95.CIH and Magistr Worm.
