Premature Reports of Death of Botnets?

Postby Handle With Care » Wed Nov 17, 2010 3:50 am

The Register picked this one up from CYMRU: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2010/11/16 ... dying_off/ <http://b.oooom.net/1ev4>

Ummmm...their answer to destroying botnets is blocking Port 6667. Wasn't that tried by various businesses, universities, and ISP's several years ago?

I can't stop giggling.
