    Some good background info on Wiki about RBN (Russian Business Network)
    These thugs have been doing more in the affiliate marketing arena, so I just wanted to raise a little awareness here concerning who they are.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_Business_Network

    They've got connections to some high up Russian politicians and last year began faking geo facades to better mask their location and organized structure.

    They got caught pretending they were chinese hackers, a very believable ruse.

    There are lots of good links about them on wikipedia and here's a brief mention, from last year, in the Washington Post:

    Lived in St. Petersburg, Russia for the past 7 years, and never heard the name RBN. You live you learn... Nasty stuff.

    I've searched around and the only name I've found is some Polyakov. I know a cosmonaut by this name, but have never heard of a single politician by this name, especially among the "powerful and well-connected" ones. Does anyone see any more information on this?

    Thanks for the heads-up, Donuts!

    PS: Doing some additional research on it now. Will post my findings shortly.
