Online Exclusive: Storm Trojan Podcast

Oct 19, 2007

Ralph Jensen interviews Joe Stewart, senior security researcher at SecureWorks about the Storm Trojan. A botnet Trojan, Storm is designed to infect computers and use them to send SPAM and launch denial of service attacks. The Trojan uses P2P communications to avoid having its central control point disabled. Stewart estimates that Storm has accumulated between 250,000 and 1 million hosts, which he says is powerful enough to launch a denial of service attack against anyone, even entire countries.
