    The Simda botnet, known for spreading banking malware and dropping a backdoor on hundreds of thousands of machines worldwide, was taken down last Thursday in a collaborative effort between international law enforcement bodies and private security and technology companies. Fourteen command and control servers in five countries were seized, putting an end to a malware family that has infected more than 90,000 computers since January of this year alone, according to researchers at Kaspersky Lab, one of the security companies involved in the takedown.
