Microsoft has taken drastic steps to stop the Waledac botnet this week. The really scary part is 60,000 PCs in the month of August where still infected after almost a full year since it was at its height. These systems tried 15 million times to connect to the Waladac botnet in that month.
People are still not protecting their PCs, at this time any security program as long as it is being updated will find and remove this from the systems it has infected.
