Loads.cc active under new domain

Source: Sunbelt BLOG

Loads.cc is a malware gang which sells zombies (compromised hosts). Last year, PC World published an article which claimed that the going rate for compromising a typical Windows-based host was twenty cents. Loads.cc was taken offline in late January this year after suffering a DDoS attack launched by a rival gang which utilised Barracuda anti-spam appliances. The gang is now back under a new domain name, and is currently disseminating malware through 3D screensaver Trojan horses.
