From what I hear....
trojans like zeus use a DGA in the org, net and com domains.
Perhaps MS should seize those as well, and let only the "good" traffic though?

Re: When suing is a public service
I am creating new DDNS names, there is a whole lot more than just changing a name though. Every client that logs into that server must be setup too with the new info. This will take days at least, clients do not care how it works they just want to click and be there

As a user of No-IP that is a paying and legit customer and is STILL down. This is just wrong. They took millions of ip's down to close about 2000 bad accounts. This is like shooting everyone to kill one guilty person

When suing is a public service
This may be necessary for Microsoft's business, I don't know, but I'm viewing it as a public service move.

Incorporating a Prevention Mindset into Threat Detection and Response
Threat detection and response systems, by definition, are reactive because they have to wait for damage to be done before finding the attack. With a prevention-mindset, security teams can proactively anticipate the attacker's next move, rather than reacting to specific threats or trying to detect the latest techniques in real-time. The report covers areas enterprises should focus on: What positive response looks like. Improving security hygiene. Combining preventive actions with red team efforts.
