Microsoft names defendants in Zeus botnet case

Microsoft has identified and named two defendants in the company’s civil suit against members behind the Zeus botnet.

Microsoft named Yevhen Kulibaba and Yuriy Konovalenko as defendants, and turned over evidence in the case over to the FBI for criminal review, according to an official Microsoft blog post.

The two people named by Microsoft were already serving jail time in the United Kingdom for other Zeus malware related charges, according to Microsoft.

In March, Microsoft’s Digital Crimes Unit, along with leading financial services associations, announced that they had disrupted (though not permanently taken down) a number of the most harmful botnets using the Zeus family of malware.

Botnets are networks of virus-infected computers that can send out spam or viruses.
