But now, "Hermes", who had infected over six million computers and earned around 5 million francs, was caught in Russia.

This is especially interesting in that most botnet operators never target users within Russia or Ukraine. This guy must be perceived as a particularly stupid person for doing so, practically begging to be prosecuted.

Either way: well done.
