Europol called it "one of most significant botnets of the past decade" and one of the main "door openers" for computer systems worldwide.

"The most successful and prevalent malware of 2020 by a long way", he said, it had, over the course of the year, sent phishing emails with more than 150,000 different subject lines and 100,000 file names for the attachments.

Good to see it has gone down.
