Authorities in the United States, Germany, the Netherlands and the U.K. last week said they dismantled the "RSOCKS" botnet, a collection of millions of hacked devices that were sold as "proxies" to cybercriminals looking for ways to route their malicious traffic through someone else's computer. While the coordinated action did not name the Russian hackers allegedly behind RSOCKS, KrebsOnSecurity has identified its owner as a Russian man living abroad who also runs the world's top Russian spamming forum.
