Downadup/Conficker worm

  1. Interesting technique for the control channel: it pseudo-randmly generates a
    new domain name each day, and tries to connect to that. All the perps have
    to do is register one of these names for a predetermined day, and they get
    control of the botnet.

    Of course, the white hats can play the same game.
