FBI Turns Up Heat on Bot Herders

Quote:
So far, three people have been arrested in connection with "Operation Bot Roast", an initiative by the FBI and Department of Justice to disrupt networks of hijacked computers. The most infamous is "Spam King" Robert Soloway, who was charged with 35 counts of hijacking computers and using them to send spam messages.


Can I have some potatoes and carrots with my Bot Roast please?
