Report by MalwareBytes suggests, Paunch and his team are already arrested somewhere in Russia.
Maarten Boone the security researcher at Fox-IT hinted:
So, what are the noticeable changes? According to MalwareBytes, one of the encrypting service(crypt.am) used by the exploitkit is taken down.
Another is the outage of update by Paunch of malicious Java Applets when usually he updates it once or twice a day.
If Paunch is really arrested, this could affect a lot in the exploit kit business. The criminals who ‘rent’ the Blackhole exploit kit for sure no longer receive any update and will fall if not savvy enough.
