In a story posted on the subreddit /r.australia, a user who goes by the handle of BellaThorne wrote:”Bella Thorns are not the most commonly known botnet.
However, it’s safe to say that Bella has a significant and growing number of users.
So, this is an investigation into this particular botnet, to identify who is behind the activity and who the users are.
The botnet itself has been in the wild for years and has been active for several months now.
This particular bot is active primarily in the south west of the country and will likely be the source of the majority of the botnet traffic in the near future.”
The investigation started after an incident at the Bella thorns website on March 6, where the bot began uploading images of the Australian flag, the Australian Prime Minister, and Australian icons.
In response, users on Reddit created a petition to ask the Federal Government to investigate the bot’s operators.
The thread was deleted after a month but was later reinstated by the subreddit moderators.
The thread was also a topic of discussion on /r, with users complaining that the government was not taking action and asked why the Australian Government was not making any more arrests.
As a result of the investigation, the Federal Police and Department of Immigration have launched an investigation.
The department has also launched a hotline for those affected by the incident, and an email has also been sent to people affected.
In a statement, the department said it was aware of the “potential impact on the Australian public”.
“We take all cyber crime seriously, and we work with industry and law enforcement to protect our network infrastructure from further attacks,” it said.
“We are actively working with the industry to ensure our networks are secure.
We also regularly monitor and update our network, and our Cyber Incident Response Team is currently investigating the cause of the incident.”
