Zombie botnet costs 500 milion $ a year

Hi malware fighters,

Botnets and zombie computers are a serious problem for the Internet industry. Ironically enough while broadband users fall victim to this abuse,  ISP's are confronted with the expenses. Still a lot of ISP's do not treat this issue seriously enough and try to ignore this. Want to know what it cost your ISP?
