FTC forces hive of scum and villainy ISP offline

The FTC has obtained a temporary restraining order against Pricewert LLC, operating under a series of different ISP names. The ISP is accused of peddling violent pornography, acting as a command and control center for botnets, and distributing spy and malware.
