Microsoft Citadel botnet assault liberated 2 million PCs

Quote:
On June 5, we reported on a take down of Citadel botnet networks by Microsoft‘s Digital Crime Unit and the FBI, among other unspecified “technology industry partners.” The assault had resulted in 1400 Citadel botnet networks being taken down, and now Microsoft has revealed the number of computers liberated as a result: at least 2 million.
