So far they've found three people linked to the botnet. There's most likely going to be more arrests later once they find more people involved. They're normal people with no criminal records and have stolen millions of credit card information and banking info. You guessed correctly. They only get SIX years in prison if convicted.

Botnet is a jargon term for a collection of software agents, or bots, that run autonomously and automatically. The term is most commonly associated with malicious software, but it can also refer to the network of computers using distributed computing software[citation needed]. While botnets are often named after their malicious software name, there are typically multiple botnets in operation using the same malicious software families, but operated by different criminal entities.


Personally, I don't think they should get six years in prison. They should get much more.

Discuss.

In my opinion, these people should get at least twice as long as that, maybe even more. It's like giving someone community service for murder.Free counters!
