It's hard to say who's to blame. Nazario said it appears Storm is still under one group of users who send the pump-and-dump spam as a way to make money, and who also defend the bot through DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks "to try and get researchers to go away. There have also been indications of other activities associated with the Storm worm . "It's hard to say if it's the same people or if something else is going on."Nazario suggested a PC might have multiple infections, serving up both Storm malcode and spyware and fraud software. "That we had not previously seen associated with Storm worm." Indeed, Storm is one worm/botnet that keeps evolving. If someone have more info about DDoS And Storm worm please share with me.
