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?
