A botnet which experts believe sent out 18% of the world's spam email has been shut down, a security firm said.
Grum's control servers were mainly based in Panama, Russia and Ukraine.
Security company FireEye and spam-tracking service SpamHaus worked with local internet service providers (ISPs) to shut down the illegal network.
