Good write up over at Network World http://www.networkworld.com/news/2007/102407-storm-worm-security.html


Quote:
A recently discovered capability of Storm is its ability to interrupt applications as they boot up and either shut them down or allow them to appear to boot, but disable them. Users will see that, say, antivirus is turned on, but it isnít scan for viruses, or as Korman puts it, it is brain-dead. "Itís running, but itís not doing anything. You can brain-dead anything," he says.



This one still seems to be a bit of a worry still.

Ive been running Linux as my desktop now for just over a year. I must be honest when I switch to Vista it seems clunky compared to Ubuntu Gutsy Laughing

To try to keep all "storm" information in one place, I am locking this thread and pointing to

http://bravodelta.servemp3.com/viewtopic.php?t=122522

where all comments about the storm bot can be posted.
