Abstract

According to investigators from Symantec the security company, even as law enforcement and security agencies pounced a few times on the notorious Waledac (also called Kelihos) bot-masters, the latter just won't surrender as they're employing fresh variants for establishing still newer networks of the earlier army-of-bots.

Symantec's researchers state that there's yet again an increase in the total number of PCs having the new W32.Waledac.D infection, with the majority of the devices being within USA.
