Earlier this week, The New New Internet reported on the disruption of Internet access to computers that made up the Zeus botnet. However, the victory appears to be short-lived, as security researchers have already found that a third of the computers have been re-linked to command servers.

Thirty of the approximate 100 servers that were disrupted have now come back on-line after the ISP found a new provider. This allowed some of the cyber criminals to reconnect with the infected computers in the Zeus botnet.

“The problem is that as soon the C&Cs are reachable from the internet again, the cyber criminals can regain the control of their botnet and can safely move the stolen data away from those AS’s to a safer place or to a backup server,” a researcher connected to the Zeus Tracker service told The Register.
