Fun Comments on Storm "Worm"

These here and also these. This quote related to Storm "worm" sophistication was a major 'wow!' for me: "Now we have some serious architects involved. This is in line with the great successes of computer science: Unix, the Internet, Skype all achieved this level of sophistication in engineering, with real results. I tried with Ricardo, Lynn&Anne tried with x9.59. Others as well, like James and the Digicash crew. Mojo, Bittorrent and the p2p crowd tried it too.

So we have a new result [i.e. Storm "worm"]: the enemy now has architects as good as our best."

The post also explains why takedowns no longer work.
