Storm Worm blows out

10 percent smaller


The
Storm Worm botnet is only 10 percent of its former size, a University of California researcher claims.

Brandon Enright, a network security analyst at UC San Diego, has been tracking Storm since July. He told PC World that the network is presently a shadow of its former self. While some claim that Storm has 50 million computers, Enright said in July, for example, he said that Storm appeared to have infected about 1.5 million PCs, about 200,000 of which were accessible at any given time.

The 15 million PCs that had been infected by Storm over the last nine months have mostly been cleaned up and are no longer part of the Storm network.
