Just a quick blog. As the original blog entry Japanese Porn Extortion attracted so much interest from around the globe, I am happy to report that Japanese law enforcement have arrested two men in connection with the  Kenzero malware and associated fraud.
 
Yomiuri Online reports that two men have been arrested, one Oka Akira, 27 years old and another who remains anonymous because of his age (20). The arrests were made on the grounds of suspicion of fraud as the creation of malware is reportedly not a criminal act in Japan. The article states that the number of victims is around 5,000 but expected to rise and that the pair are charged with defrauding “tens of thousands” of Japanese Yen.
 
Chalk one up to the good guys.
