Spammers Regaining Control Over Srizbi Botnet

It’s alive!  The botnet, which was crippled several weeks ago by the closure of a San Jose ISP, is back. Srizbi botnet is estimated to be responsible for about half of the world’s spam and it appears that the shadowy group, working from Russia, has regained control and spam levels are on the rise.  It’s tough to keep a good spammer down.
