The Strange Tale of the Attacks Against GRC.COM.
“Nothing more than the whim of a 13-year old hacker is required to knock any user, site, or server right off the Internet.”

Fascinating stuff about denial of service attacks and zombie computers. I’m particularly interested because my own Linux server fell prey to the Adore worm a few months ago. After that I felt so compromised and violated that I seriously contemplated for about 3 days or so giving up the internet completely.
