The season for web bounty hunters is open
United States, July 22, 2011
U.S. company Microsoft is offering bounties that go up to 250 thousand dollars to those who discover and find the creators of a spam website.
The bounty is for the creators of Rustock, a global web that sends over 30 billion trash messages a day.
Bill Gates’s company has offered up to 250,000 dollars to whoever discovers and captures its owners and creators, and have already given their first clues.
“In base to the evidence gathered for the case, we have reasons to believe that the people behind Rustock operated or operates from Russia,” the head of the digital crime unit of Microsoft, Richard Boscovich, said.
