Four years in jail! My big concern is what will happen when he gets out.

Russian Bredolab Botnet Mastermind Gets Jail [bbc.co.uk]
A cybercrime mastermind who hijacked the PCs of more than 30 million people has been jailed for four years.

Russian hi-tech criminal Georgiy Avanesov was found guilty of computer sabotage by an Armenian court.

Mr Avanesov was tried and sentenced in Armenia, as he was arrested at the country's Yerevan airport in 2010.

The authorities closed in on Mr Avanesov after they took and dismantled the network of computers he controlled.

Bredolab began operating in 2009 and Mr Avanesov used a variety of techniques, including automated attacks and phishing messages, to expand it.
