Microsoft Offers HUGE Bounty For Information On Rustock Botnet Owners
The owners of the Rustock botnet used to run one of the biggest spam operations in the world, capable of sending out over 30 billion spam messages each and every day. They also violated some of Microsoft's trademarks in those emails. Microsoft obviously didn't like that. The company teamed up with federal prosecutors and gave Rustock a virtual butt-whupping that brought the network to its knees. Now, Microsoft wants info on the botnet's handlers, and they'll give you tons of money if you supply them with names.
