So /pol/ tards, I just picked up on news that an actual botnet ring was taken down today, one called fluxnet. It had aproximately half a million bots on it, hidden via tor, and kept fuck well secured. It is major head in the FBI books. I don't care that they took it down, I care about what happened afterwords.

This botnet ring was actually something in the hacking world, but not even a mention has been given from the news (I had to go to great lengths to verify that this shit is true).

Now my question is why the news rages when the fbi takes down skiddies with waterpistols (blackshades), but when one of the last 500k botnet rings goes down, not a single fuck is given? Aren't they suposed to report news?

(img related, is the logo of the hacking ring brought down)

Once people realize what a botnet is then they will stop using google chrome.

what does it mean

OP Here, google "botnet". Basicaly The botmaster loads a virus that inoluntarily connects a computer to a website/irc chat. Computer awaits commands from the bot master.

Think of what you could do with 500k bots

the news has no idea how to present it. To the average joe, a computer is a magic box and everything bad is done by a virus. they don't know what a botnet is, or tor, or anything.
