14 Rogue ISPs disconnected

Well worth reading the whole article

On the evening of the 11th of January, a Russian based ISP called Vline Telecom (AS39150) was de-peered from its upstream provider RUNNet.ru. As a result of the disconnect, 9 of the world wide worst Bulletproof Hosters got offline and the number of active Zeus Botnet Command&Control servers dropped from 61 to 41 on 12th of January.

Additionally, in January 2011 I was informed about another takedown of a Ukrainian based ISP called ONLINENET SPD Andreychuk Andrey Alekseevich (AS50722) which resulted in another 5 bulletproof hosters disappearing from the global routing table.

We can say that January 2011 was a very bad start for cybercriminals, as a total of 14 bulletproof hosters have been disconnected from the internet this month.

I am not familiar with this particular ISP, but it sounds like progress. :)
