At 9:00am EST on Friday May14th AS50896 PROXIEZ lost its ability to infect the Internet. To avoid confusion there were ‘unsuccessful’ attempts to reconnect on Saturday & Sunday May 15/16th. This is where there may have been reports of connections to bots and Malware being still alive.
The upstream peer AS50818 DIGERNET was also disconnected from the Internet @ 10:30am EST on Friday May14th. AS50908 EVAUA (InfoPlus Ltd.) is currently attempting to serve the Zeus C&Cs as a replacement for Proxiez.
