New BotNet: "Mayday"
Apparently there is a new BotNet being assembled that could overtake "Storm", that has been dubbed "Mayday"
Article is here:
"MayDay uses a combination of techniques to communicate with its bots, including hijacking browser proxy settings, says Tripp Cox, vice president of engineering for [security company] Damballa," writes Dark Reading. "He says, "It can communicate through an enterprise's secure Web proxy and conduct updates and attack activities" -- a unique method for a botnet.
