Operation Bot Roast: FBI Contacting PC Owners

FBI tries to fight zombie hordes:

The FBI is contacting more than one million PC owners who have had their computers hijacked by cyber criminals.

The initiative is part of an ongoing project to thwart the use of hijacked home computers, or zombies, as launch platforms for hi-tech crimes.

Maybe the FBI should contact the ISPs the known affected computers are connected instead and free up the agents for more important tasks than recommending anti-malware suites.
