The United States Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have hammered the Coreflood botnet, which its owners used to conduct cyberfraud on a massive scale. They have seized five command and control servers and 29 domain names registered in the United States, obtained a temporary restraining order that lets the government intercept signals from any other C&C servers handling the botnet, and filed a civil complaint against 13 John Does over the botnet.

There is a huge flash thing continuously pulsing (and erasing a chunk of the HTML), which might be an artifact of the advertisers not knowing how to design for my computer, another (or possibly the same one) emitting periodic loud music, which obviously IS highly intentional, and at the very top of the article there's an ad for SMS spamming service.

Is this an attempt to simulate the experience of a zombie'd computer so that linux users who don't execute every 'funny screensaver' our friends send us can see what it's like to be in a botnet?
