Srizbi Botnet:: "Magic" Resurrection of Stranded Botnet

Srizbi Botnet: Life after McColo is a fascinating story of the "resurrection" of control over stranded "bot"s after its command and control was taken down.

Summary: After one week of taking down a major central command of this BotNetwork (Srizbi) - which drove down the spam traffic by 50%, the isolated and stranded botnets somehow came back to life under control of the original owner.

Truly inspired technique with the forethought of planning to get caught and how to get around it.
