FBI crackdown on botnets welcomed by Finjan.

Finjan Software : 18 June, 2007  (Technical Article)
Finjan announces its support for Operation Bot Roast, an FBI initiative to take legal action against bot initiators who are involved in computer fraud.
Finjan applauds the news that the FBI has launched a series of arrests and investigations against so-called `botherders' - alleged of committing computer fraud and abuse in violation of Title 18 USC 1030.

Finjan also welcomes the ongoing cyber crime initiative to disrupt and dismantle "botherders" and elevate the public's cyber security awareness of botnets.

'The FBI's actions in raising the public's level of security awareness regarding botnets and moving against this type of activity are to be applauded,' said Yuval Ben-Itzhak, Finjan's CTO. 'Our quarterly web security trends reports have identified botnets as a potentially serious problem for some time now. Whilst Finjan's IT security offerings can help protect against these types of attacks, anything that takes 'botherders' out of circulation is a positive move for Internet users everywhere,' added Ben-Itzhak.
