Authorities ID Mariposa Botnet Creator

Sounds like Iserdo not only had a keen business plan, but also was quite adept at writing extensible code!

From 2008 to 2010, authorities allege Iserdo sold Butterfly Bot to cyber-criminals worldwide. In turn, these individuals developed networks of infected bots, of which Mariposa was the largest and most notorious, the FBI stated. In addition to selling Butterfly Bot, Iserdo developed customized versions for certain customers and created and sold plug-ins to augment the botnet’s features and functionality.
