Please improve[edit]

Please flesh this out.

I added a bunch of current news sources. I don't know if I'd want to build another huge article on a botnet, but depending on how interesting this one is I'd be possibly game. Lawrence § t/e 16:43, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
See Storm botnet for an idea of what this article could become. Adding more references that say basically the same thing is only marginally helpful. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs)/(e-mail) 17:03, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
I just added them all preemptively, in case anyone jumped the gun and pulled the AFD trigger too early here; sorry! Storm has been quietish for a while, so this news industry needs another zomg doom topic to cover--we'll have sources in spades in the next weeks. Lawrence § t/e 17:07, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

New info[edit]

I found a link of how some security researchers found a way to shutdown the botnet. http://www.eweek.com/c/a/Security/Kraken-Botnet-Infiltration-Triggers-Ethics-Debate/ Apparently this has started an ethics debate on whether the researchers have the right to de-bot these people computers, This should be a good thing to work into the article. --Arnos78 (talk) 03:02, 8 May 2008 (UTC)
