The good news is that a small band of researchers got together and identified a major new suspected source for malevolence on the Web, Real Host Ltd., then convinced connection provider TeliaSonera to pull the plug.

Jart Armin and Andrew Martin, among others, found that Real Host was using leased space at hosting provider Junik in Latvia to infect Web surfers through unpatched security holes and control chunks of the Zeus botnet, which is stealing financial data from an estimated 3.6 million PCs in the US alone. In the old days, that would have made for interesting reading and not much more.
