Great news - we may have less spam

Bredolab botnet shut down starts with:

"The Dutch National Crime Squad has announced a major takedown. The people behind the botnet have not been caught, but the servers (hosted in LeaseWeb IP space) have been taken over, effectively shutting down the botnet."

This botnet controled over 30 million infected computers.

Just amazing.
