Definition Edit

MegaD is

a mass spamming botnet first observed in 2007, credited at its peak with responsibility for sending a third of the world's spam.[1]

Overview Edit

"MegaD is striking for its resilience, having survived two major attempts at disruption: the McColo shutdown of Dec. 2008, and a takedown effort coordinated by FireEye in Nov. 2009. In both cases MegaD initially ground to a halt, but then quickly bounced back with greater vigor."[2]
