According to ThreatPost, the infamous Walledac botnet is now totally offline.  What I don’t get about that is just HOW can they possibly be sure?  Perhaps it’s owners just abandoned a crapload of it’s zombie machines to give the impression it’s down?

Then again, the other side of that coin is that even IF the thing is down, it makes absolutely ZERO difference.  The spam is still flowing just as much today as it was the day before or the month before or the year before.  They’re making a big deal about ONE botnet being down when there’s probably a couple dozen new ones starting up to take it’s place.
