This week, Richard Boscovich, Senior Attorney for the Microsoft Digital Crimes Unit, announced a $250,000 bounty for information that results in the identification, arrest, and criminal conviction of those responsible for controlling the Rustock botnet.

Microsoft shuttered Rustock (a major source of spam) back in March and we continue both to search for the cyberciminals responsible and to help people regain control of their Rustock-infected computers. If you think your computer might be at risk, learn how you can remove and avoid computer viruses.


Anyone who has with information about Rustock should contact their international law enforcement agency.
