The crooks attacked by smarter crooks

The zombie network that was dismantled in the Netherlands has now grown to over 1.3 million computers that try to ring back 'home'. The story itself comes clear because it was 180 solutions, an aggressive spyware installerfirm (that now says it want to clean up its act) that was targeted by a massive ddos attack (see http://www.securingit.tk) and filed a complaint with the FBI after which the rest followed.
 
It seems that the guy behind the attack wasn't accepting the fact that 180 solutions refused to pay him after some complaints.
