Precedent Events, Current Events Posted by Sean @ 13:53 GMT


Precedent Events:
On February 1, 2006 we blogged about a variant of the Breplibot worm (Breplibot.AE) that was being distributed via mass amounts of spam. That spam was using the name of "David Adams" and spoofed the F-Secure domain name.

Current Events:
Police in the UK and in Finland have recently taken suspects into custody for computer related criminal activity. Additional details can be found here (YLE) and here (BBC).

We'd like to offer our thanks to the UK and Finnish investigators for their efforts.
