Facebook, FBI Take Down Botnet Crime Ring

Facebook is now an international crime fighter. Just I have a picture of Zuckerberg in tights and a cape stuck in my head. eek!

Facebook’s security team provided assistance to law enforcement throughout the investigation by helping to identify the root cause, the perpetrators, and those affected by the malware. Yahos targeted Facebook users from 2010 to October 2012, and security systems were able to detect affected accounts and provide tools to remove these threats.
