It’s time for another random collection of shiny things that caught my eye on the internet!

How about a bird’s eye view?

Have you heard of botnets? They are collectives of PCs that have been infected by malware, that turns them into slaves for criminal organizations. In many instances the PC owners don’t even realize that their computer has been turned into a zombie. Modern botnets are constantly updating and next to impossible to stamp out. Yet, recently researchers hijacked control of a botnet away from its criminal owners, and the results are both fascinating and frightening. This is definitely worth a read.
