Quotes

"The goal cannot be reached by law enforcement alone, but will require a consolidated effort from many stakeholders in our global village."
Europol said in a statement that the J-CAT will focus on combating "malware coding, testing, distribution, Botnets, Crime-as-a-Service, online fraud, intrusion and similar top-end crimes."
...Speaking to SC Magazine the head of operations at the European Cyber Crime Centre said "We're really testing this out as a learning exercise… The more you practise at doing something the better – and luckier – you get at doing it… We're pushing an open door, the cyber-crime investigation community agree that this is the only way they can work"
"India is also a center for botnets -- as bot infecting viruses like Ramnit and Sality are rampant. PC's in a botnet are used mainly by hackers for distributed denial-of-service (DDoS), spamming and possibly bitcoin mining" , added Mr Amith Nath of F-Secure
