Microsoft in cooperation with law enforcement agencies managed to take down command and control servers of ZeroAccess, one of the largest botnets, at the beginning of December 2013. What followed was series of attempts of the operators of the botnet to seed IPs of new C&C servers followed by swift taking them down by Microsoft and its cooperators. Security company Sophos now reports that the botnet operators have finally give up by sending a “white flag“ message and stopping spreading the malware.
