The arrest of Russian cybercriminal Pyotr Levashov (aka Peter Severa, or threat actor ZOMBIE SPIDER to CrowdStrike Falcon Intelligence™ subscribers), made global headlines this week and with good reason. For several years, Levashov had been the subject of an international law enforcement operation led by the FBI, which sought to curtail his global criminal activities powered by a peer-to-peer (P2P) botnet known as Kelihos. Levashov was the primary threat actor behind Kelihos, and its predecessors Waledac and Storm.
