This seems to be a pretty big deal. I have heard estimates ranging from 10,000 to 1 Million computers working as bots taking down/ clogging up sites. How does this process work? What is being done? It looks like urgentmessage.org is down also, that was a good source of addresses for me. If urgent... is set up as an automatically running site, it may be down for a long time. Does anybody know who runs it? We should really be developing an automatic baiter to counter these low lifes.

I'm not in the know, but my gut feeling is that this cost someone a lot of money to execute. And I mean a *lot*.

Hey, at the end of the day, we won & they lost...

We're still here, and they've spent a ton of money. And, isn't that our ultimate goal anyway, to make lads spend money?

The early consensus is that it costed money? I have googled and not found a lot on just exactly this process works. Is there "a man" that a scammer or group of scammers that someone can go to to get this done? Is it just one rich guy or did some scammers get together? How does a bot network work? Do the sites targeted come back after the bots turn off?

as far as I know...

"The early consensus is that it costed money?" - Yes

"Is there "a man" that a scammer or group of scammers that someone can go to to get this done?" - more likely the botnet would be owned by a gang rather than one person.

"Is it just one rich guy or did some scammers get together?" - No idea, but it would have to be a very rich scammer to be able to pay for it, so in my opinion its probably a group of scammers.

"How does a bot network work?" - Someone at home / work downloads a screensaver or some other program which has a trojan in it - which allows the owner of the trojan to access and control the computer. If thousands of people install the program, the bot master can control thousands of computers, making them all try to access one website - which will 'melt' the server.

"Do the sites targeted come back after the bots turn off?" - yes, generally.

Feel free to correct me if I've said anything wrong.

This cost money; either real currency or just tying up a bot network that could have been doing other, paid, work.

It is very interesting to me, that some group is coherent enough to find it economically viable to commit the resources required for the length of time that they have.

It cost them money both to do it and as an outcome. I have increased my bank killing and baiting quite a bit and plan to keep it going for as long as I can.

Hey mugus for every action there is an exact and opposite reaction. Twisted Evil

You mess with domains to slow down the baiting and bank killing. It increases baiting bank killing and everything you’re trying to stop

Who’s with me?

I'm sure that they have caused a few headaches around here, but in the long term they have hurt themselves. They can't sustain the attack indefinitely, and in the meantime Eater has upgraded to a better service, making it harder for the next DOS to succeed. I've doubled the number of baits that I'm running, diversified my file storage, and turned my name gold. How many non-premium members are left around here? If anything, they have helped Eater, because more people are more active, and as soon as it is over with I'm sure there will be an explosion of new members, because I'm probably not the only one recruiting my friends to come check the site out.
And anyway, I'm having a lot of fun, annoying a lot of lads, and it doesn't affect my life or my business.

I my opinion this has not cost money. As far as I can research, this is caused by the Storm worm. A group in Russia sent out a loaded email about the storms in Europe over the summer or spring, I forget. They were able to zombie over 100K computers. I also heard up to 1.2 million. Then to demonstrate their ability, they picked a group of anti-spam/scam site to take down. They can use a small percentage of their botnet while allowing the other bots to operate unimpeded.

But that is all only my opinion.

Some related links... most have been posted before, but I thought I would add them. I think that this may be something to watch. IMHO of course.

From my reading of the storm worm and associated info. It is quite conceivable that once initiated the DDOS attack can run until every infected pc is cleaned. It seems that the new strains don't require a bot master and are replicating themselves daily. So unless the person who started it calls a stop to it it will continue unabated. Lets face it it's not the scammers servers that are sending this out it's the infected PC's all over the world.

^^Interesting article, but a few security experts have been saying for a while that storm worm activity would drop when the authors were preparing for phase 2. Split the net into smaller ones and rent them out. Not dead, just resting.
