Great news, but what's next?
Great summary of events. It will be interesting to see if any lasting relief comes of this operation. I'd like to be optimistic, but I think it more likely the actors behind this will just push persistance one step farther. We break C&C, they add P2P C&C. We break P2P C&C, I'll bet we see redundant P2P C&C networks next. 

I wrote a different angle on this story at http://dnlongen.blogspot.com/2014/06/GameoverZeuS.html, giving tips on reducing the damage such malware can inflict. Prevention is ideal, but if prevention worked every time we wouldn't see stories such as this.

Re: Great job
I hope so. It is the unique way to combat cybercrime, Cyberspace has no boundaries, that's why it is essential a joint effort and a shared law framework.

Re: Great job
@securityaffairs  I agree. It does seem that law enforcement agencies are doing more international collaboration, and it seems to be paying dividends. Do you think that everyone's buying into that idea, and it will become the norm going forward? Or not?

Great job
Cybercriminal organizations are becoming even more difficult to contrast, this operation must be a case study for further operation, a perfect example of international effort against illicit activities.

Great Job
