Last month, we talked about China's Wicked Rose and the NCPH Hacking Group. This month, we are going to mention the Russian Business Network (RBN) . Malware researchers have been tracking this group for some time and they claim they are responsible for a lot of pain on the Internet.
Brian Krebs has written a good overview of the RBN on his blog.
It is tough to find a serious cyber-crime attack over the past two to three years that did not involve RBN Internet addresses to some degree.
It seems the RBN is also listed in ROKSO (Register of Known Spam Organisation) of Spamhaus.
