Caught Malware Authors

Hello everybody,

I am looking for some statistics or other information about how many malware authors are actually caught by the police or other authorities.

Short Background: In my baccalaureate thesis i made the assumption that hardly any malware authors are caught by the authorities (i read about this somewhere, but i forgot where) and now I need a reference for this assumption *g*.

It would be great if someone knows a paper, some statistics or some other stuff about this topic.

Thx a lot and greets from Vienna

I suggest you review

I suggest you review F-Secure and Kaspersky Labs blogs. They usually report when a malware author is caught by police.
