Light up some candles, since you’ve just missed Storm’s birthday. To those of you who don’t know what Storm is, well, it is the virus with the biggest botnet (essentially, a group of zombie computers controlled remotely) since a lot earlier in the decade. It is assumed that Storm’s botnet has at least 1,000,000 PCs.
Storm was unleashed upon the world in November 2006, by the name of Nuwar, due to the spam mail by which it came, which dealt with an unavoidable nuclear war between the USA and Russia. This spam mail contained an attachment which would turn computers into bots. The botnet would engage in mass-mailing penny-stock-fraud spam.
