Boing Boing: Internet worms attack each other to build massive botnets

http://www.boingboing.net/2005/08/18/internet_worms_attac.html

I’m going to try to write this without gloating, but I admit it’ll be hard. This mention in BoingBoing of a serious virus going around the ‘net was the first I’d heard of it. It’s times like these that I LOVE being a Mac user! “This week’s storm of Windows worms is compounded by the fact that rival botnet gangs have written worms that attack each other, targetting one-another’s compromised zombies and converting them to part of their own botnets.”
