Brazen Botnets Steal From EShopping Carts

Two large botnets that control 150,000 compromised computers are hacking into users' online shopping carts to steal credit card numbers, bank account details, and logon passwords, a security company said Friday.

The botnets, said Foster City, Calif.-based FaceTime, were discovered, probed, and disclosed to authorities with the help of an insider who tipped off the company's security researchers and showed them the inner workings of the bot underground.
