Abstract

When authorities in Russia arrested Paunch, the alleged creator of the Blackhole exploit kit, last month, security researchers and watchers of the malware underground predicted that taking him off the board would put a dent in the use of Blackhole and force its customers onto other platforms. Six weeks later, it now appears that Blackhole is almost gone and the Cool exploit kit, another alleged creation of Paunch, has essentially disappeared, as well.
