Attorney refutes Kaspersky claims of untouchable network

No botnet is invulnerable, a Microsoft lawyer involved with the Rustock take-down said, countering claims that another botnet was "practically indestructible."
"If someone says that a botnet is indestructible, they are not being very creative legally or technically," Richard Boscovich, a senior attorney with Microsoft's Digital Crime Unit said. "Nothing is impossible. That's a pretty high standard."
Instrumental in the effort that led to the seizure of Rustock's command-and-control servers in March, Boscovich said Microsoft's experience in takedowns of Waledac in early 2010 and of Coreflood and Rustock this year show that any botnet can be exterminated.
