Russian Company Outed as Mother of all Cybercrime

A Russian company named the Russian Business Network, or RBN has been identified as a “Conduit for Cybercrime” by the Washington Post and blasted by the anti-spam organization Spamhaus for being ” …among the world’s worst spammer, child-pornography, malware, phishing and cybercrime-hosting networks.” The security vendor iDefense advises clients to block all traffic from RBN. Recently, the Bank of India was cyber-attacked, with much of the activity emanating from RBN servers. Yet, the company founder claims it is all just a case of mistaken identity. Russian officials have shown no interest in shuttering this leviathan of Internet cyber-crime.
