A storm’s a-brewin’

Batten down the hatches, there’s a new worm on the loose. It’s creating a very large botnet, which basically means it’s like a virus that installs itself on your computer, but it doesn’t really do much at first. From there it will probably send emails to everyone in your address book trying to infect them. But then your computers just sit there and wait for a signal from a central server that will cause your computer and hundreds of thousands of other ones to crash servers all across the Internet. They’re comparing it to the Storm botnet from last year. Currently few antiviruses are detecting the worm. Glad I’m not on Windows! 🙂
