Infamous cybercrime hosting outfit Russian Business Network (RBN) has disappeared again, days after quitting Russia and setting up shop in China. RBN obtained seven net blocks of Chinese IP addresses. Last Wednesday (8 November), some of RBN's clients began popping up on some of the 5,120 IP addresses it had acquired. But a day …
I did wonder
i wondered how long China would tolerate Russian spammers.
I'm getting less than a third of the spam I was until a week or so ago. Too early to be sure, but perhaps the tide has finally turned.
Perhaps someone should tell the RIAA etc., that there's a whole bunch of torrents "hosted" on the RBN servers. I look forward to the day when child pornographers are hunted down with the same zeal as file sharing sites.
why did they got those Chinese IP ranges in the first place... and then ban them???
A few well-placed payments
to Chinese officials could have left RBN free to disseminate the Internet equivalent of lead and date rape drug laden toys. Suprising that someone calling themselves a "Business Network" wasn't aware of how to conduct business in the country next door.
Bulletproof hosting that isn't
What's more, the people behind RBN aren't bulletproof, either. Eventually they'll step on the wrong toes, and then it's time for sleeping with the fishes.
Which is really too good for kiddie porn purveyors, but prolonged torture requires dedicating much more time than those scum are worth.
