Next generation of botnets

Bruce Schneier (the Chuck Norris-lookalike security researcher) points to this very interesting article on the next generation of botnets. They're not out to get the internet, but use all sorts of stealth, P2P technologies, and adaptation to evade detection so that they can continue to do their maldeeds. They are highly sophisticated, and use all the latest innovations.

Makes you wonder: if there's ever going to be a singularity event, my guess is there's a pretty good chance it's going to be a piece of malware rather than an algorithm from a friendly research lab. Evolutionary pressure, you see.
