The head of Russia's Federal Security Services says he is close to prosecuting the authors of the “Pinch” Trojan. Does anyone else find it odd that this was announced publicly or do they always send out big press releases before they serve warrants?

Kaspersky said the arrest of the Pinch writers, identified as Ermishkin and Farkhutdinov, would be on the same level as the 2005 prosecution of German Sven Jaschan for creating the NetSky and Sasser worms, which caused thousands of infected computers to crash worldwide.
