Spanish police arrest masterminds of 'massive' botnet

Spanish police have arrested three men responsible for one of the world's biggest networks of virus-infected computers. All are Spanish citizens with no criminal records and limited hacking skills. It is estimated the so-called Mariposa botnet was made up of 13 million computers in 190 countries. It included PCs inside more than half of Fortune 1000 companies and more than 40 major banks.
