Botnets buying up IPv4 address space

http://j.mp/nMJ5Lr  (Threat Post)

   "Now, in one effort to get around these systems, some attackers are
    taking advantage of the lack of IPV4 space by either purchasing or
    renting blocks of IP space with good reputations that have been built
    up over the course of several years. A number of legitimate trading
    and auction sites have appeared as the IPV4 space became scarcer, and
    the attackers have gotten involved as well, getting their hands on
    known good IP blocks and using them for C&C or hosting malware."
