"A large peer-to-peer botnet known for its resilience was spotted sniffing out potential victim voice-over-IP (VoIP) servers using an advanced stealth technique of camouflaging its efforts to recruit new bots. The Sality botnet, which was first discovered in 2003 and has been estimated to have hundreds of thousands or more infected machines in its zombie army, scanned IPv4 addresses in February 2011 via a covert scanning method that flew under the radar, according to new research from the

lost+found: Vom Versuch eine Ente wieder einzufangen

Das Magazin hakin9 ist einem Troll-Versuch aufgesessen und hat einen peinlichen Nonsens-Artikel veröffentlicht: Nmap: The Internet Considered Harmful - DARPA Inference Cheking Kludge Scanning (man beachte die Abkürzung DICKS).

Das Besondere an dem Spionageprogramm ist die eingebaute Logik, die es erlaubt, die gestohlenen Daten in Echtzeit auszuwerten und möglichst schnell einem Weiterverkauf zugänglich zu machen. Trusteer nennt diese neue Form 'Universal Man in the Browser' (uMitB).
