Excerpt : "Earlier this month, the controversial BBC purchase of a 
botnet and modifying the infected hosts in the name of =E2=80=9Cpublic interest=E2=80=9D 
sparked a lot of debate on the pros and cons of their action. Condemned 
by certain security vendors, and naturally, at least from guerrilla PR 
perspective, applauded and encouraged as a awareness raising tactic by 
others, the discussion shifted from technical to moral and legal debate, 
leaving a single question unanswered - what is the name of the botnet 
that the BBC rented and what=E2=80=99s so special about it?

Until now. Let=E2=80=99s take a peek inside the BBC =E2=80=9CChimera Botnet=E2=80=9D offered
for rent by a Russian Cybercrime-as-a-service (CaaS) vendor."
