Hackers Breaking Up Own Botnets

Here's an interesting story in Information Week about how hackers are breaking up their own botnets into small botnets to evade detection. These guys are not only clever, they're nimble too.

Many large botnets are controlled from a single server acting as a command center. If that goes down, so does the botnet, making it a single point of failure. By breaking up the bot into bite-sized chunks, if one command center goes down, the rest of the botnet can keep on chugging.
