The End of Storm?

Dark Reading has posted a scandalous article about the end of the Storm worm.

"It’s been nearly a month now since the Storm botnet sent its last spam run -- significantly long enough that botnet researchers now conclude this could be the end of most infamous botnet once and for all."

Malware rockstars Joe Stewart and Paul Royal have weighed in on this and seem to suggest this is the case. I'm sad to hear about this because I had a lot of fun reversing the storm worm. It was one of the great worms, but it's a good thing that it's no longer spreading.

Is storm is just about SPAM

.... not with a botnet point of view..
