Citadel/Zeus sinkholes

Tuesday, June 11, 2013 - 10:00

Microsoft's recent take down of domains related to Citadel (a varient of Zeus) botnets has unfortunatly also taken down a number of sinkhole domains that were being used by researchers to monitor and report on Citadel infections.

As a result of this our reporting of Citadel and Zeus infections may see a drop in the coming weeks. Any decrease in the number of infections seen at a particular site may be due to this lack of visibility.
