Botnets, malware security and capturing cybercriminals: Video

Gunter Ollmann, vice president of research at Damballa, Inc. explains what researchers have learned from the Aurora attacks in January against Google Inc. and nearly two dozen other companies. Thousands of botnet operators now launch targeted botnet campaigns with the help of automated tools, Ollmann said. He explains why it is difficult for law enforcement to track down and prosecute cybercriminals, whether the Microsoft legal action to shut down the command and control network of the Waladec botnet will have any affect and he describes what future attacks may look like using "modern malware." Ollmann was interviewed at RSA Conference 2010 in San Francisco.
