Happy New Year!

Be very careful as the Storm Worm keeps spreading his word and email messages.
In fact, it may be a good idea to be suspicious of any email arriving in your inbox that wishes you New Year’s greetings, especially if it asks you to click on a link to retrieve it. What makes these malware domains difficult to take down is the methodology in which these criminals have deployed them, and the clever way they knew how to maximize their “window of opportunity” due to registrar operation hours during the end-of-year holiday. And a lot of registrars are just closed for the next 7 to 10 days. Ten or more days of availability — at the very least — will more than likely contribute to these criminals building an even larger botnet.
Nevertheless A Happy New Year from me to you all and ...
stay tuned as 2008 will bring again other things to look at ... also for me. ;-)
