Default Microsoft uses court order to take out Waledac botnet

From http://www.theregister.co.uk/2010/02...edac_takedown/

Quote:
Microsoft has won a court-issued take-down order against scores of domains associated with controlling the spam-spewing Waledac botnet.

The software giant's order allows the temporary cut-off of traffic to 277 Internet domains that form command and control nodes for the network of compromised machines. Infected (zombie) machines are programmed to regularly poll these control points for instructions and spam templates.
