botnet

Conficker

I have to admit, I'm pretty curious about what the giant botnet of Conficker-infected computers is going to start doing tomorrow. A large-scale denial of service attack is my first guess, but my instinct tells me there's something bigger in store... Either way, my clock currently reads 11:53PM so we're about to find out!

Edit: Did some quick research and it looks like the media hype got me. The only thing that's changing is the method which one variant (and not even the most popular one) receives new instructions.

Botnets

I just read on Slashdot that yet another massive botnet is growing... There must be tons of computers out there infected with multiple of these "transparent" viruses, making them belong to 2+ botnets at once. I sense an epic botnet war in the near future! Wink
