The arrests happened back around November. Some Estonian malware punks running browser hijack servers. The Feds moved in, mopped them up, but have kept the servers online, as if they were to shut them off, any infected computer would lose access to the internet. July 9th is the shut off date.

Here's an FBI press release from last year about it, before DCWG was set-up:
