Offense makes the best Defense

This is old news now (anything more than a few hours is old now) but I think it is really pretty cool. A group of security researchers working with an ISP were able to take out another botnet. This time it was the Lethic botnet that mostly focused on distributing unlicensed pharmaceutical, diploma and replica goods spam. M86 Security reported a steep drop in spam after take down. I appreciate them taking this botnet offline because seriously, the less email I get calling out my manhood the better.
