    In late 2008, a worm called Conficker began infecting millions of computers, startling the computer security community into action.

    Many countries also formed their own groups that worked with Internet service providers to remove infections from users’ computers. But seven years later, there are still about 1 million computers around the world infected with the malware despite the years-long cleanup effort.http://www.networkworld.com/article/2956293/cleaning-up-botnets-takes-years-if-ever-to-complete.html
