re: Microsoft Leads Zeus Botnet Server Shutdown
It's great that Microsoft is taking steps to help track down and bring an end to these sorts of organizations.

I would also like to see Microsoft do more to publicize what they're doing to help the end users protect themselves to keep these sorts of problems from getting any bigger, especially since Zeus supposedly only infects Windows systems.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

re: Microsoft Leads Zeus Botnet Server Shutdown
I agree with the comment at the end by Graham Cluley, but shutting down the servers and interrupting the money stream is the next best thing.

re: Microsoft Leads Zeus Botnet Server Shutdown
Microsoft seems to be struggling in some areas to understand what customer want (Windows 8 and Windows Phone), but with respect to security and shutting down dangerous Malware, Viruses and Bots; Microsoft seems to have learned what is good for it's customers is also good for it ! I applaud Microsoft working to make the Internet a safer and better place.
