Infamous Russian ISP behind Bank of India hack


Security firm Sunbelt, which recently discovered that the Bank of India's hacked website was serving dangerous malware, has said the infamous Russian Business Network an ISP linked to child pornography and phishing is behind the attack.

The service provider in question has developed a notorious reputation, with VeriSign classifying it as "the baddest of the bad" in the ISP world in June 2006.

According to a VeriSign spokesperson, the Russian Business Network (RBN) is different to other service providers because "unlike many ISPs that host predominately legitimate items, RBN is entirely illegal". Infamous Russian ISP behind Bank of India hack - ZDNet UK
