Well the first zombie networks where almost always *nix machines and
you can still find more advanced tools for *nix than for Windows.
This should act as a reminder to everyone that think that their choice
of OS makes them invulnerable or even less prone to the risk of being
owned. The only real protection is keeping every service and
application updated, keeping you OS updated and having a sound
firewalling solution in place.
DCH> Thank you for your very thorough exploit excursion. If I understand this

DCH> I have nmapped dozens of zombies. So far, they have all been Windows machines.
DCH> Scary stuff. BTW, what really concerns me is that the pipes are getting bigger.
DCH> We have seen - so far - about fifty compromised FIOS connected machines.
DCH> 15-Mbps/2-Mbps for about 45 bucks/mo and any nitwit can rape, plunder and
DCH> pillage the 'net.
