Microsoft Lawsuit Names Two Responsible for Zeus Botnet Attacks

Microsoft counted two minor successes in its war on botnets on July 2, putting names to two of the defendants in its lawsuit against a Zeus crime ring and noting that Zeus infections had dropped by almost half in the last three months.

As part of the Microsoft Active Response for Security (MARS) program, the company filed a lawsuit against a group of unknown defendants—identified as "John Does" in the original complaint—for violation of a number of civil statutes. In a July 2 blog post, the company stated that it had identified two of the defendants, Yevhen Kulibaba and Yuriy Konovalenko, and amended the complaint.

The two defendants, however, are currently serving jail time in the United Kingdom for convictions related to the Zeus malware.

"Our best efforts to identify the remaining John Doe defendants turned up no response," according to Microsoft’s complaint. "We will continue our efforts to serve defendants Kulibaba and Konovalenko, and the John Doe defendants, with this amended complaint."
