Storming the Storm-Bot

Some German ‘researchers’ have published information about how they have infiltrated the “Storm-bot” bot network and disrupted it via poisoning their traffic (although at first glance it seems more like a denial-of-service).

The story is here: http://www.infoworld.com/article/08/04/25/Researchers-poison-Storm-botnet_1.html?source=NLC-SEC&cgd=2008-04-28

I’d think they’d have to be a bit careful. Monitoring is OK, but actively interfering could be a bit dangerous.
