A Botnet Map and A Phishing Tool

This is the coolest thing. It's a botnet map, linking infected IP addresses into a nifty Flash graphic.

This isn't so cool. A botnet using a sophisticated SQL injection attack to hit legitimate web sites and enlist them in its evil army. The botnet spawns phishing spam.

Here are details about a mass SQL injection attack based in China, attacking web sites at home.

It's interesting this is happening now. I heard Caleb Sima, one of the founders of SPI Dynamics, which was acquired last year by Hewlitt Packard, predict these types of attacks at a SPI Dynamics dinner back in 2004.
