| Intrigue surrounded Connecticut's Democratic Senate race
| yesterday as U.S. Sen. Joseph Lieberman's campaign staff said hackers
| crashed his Web site just in time for primary day.
Lieberman: Site nailed by denial of service, demands AG investigate opponent
Denial of service attacks are known to be the artefact of Windows zombies.
Bot armies are gathered using one of the many exploits that enable hijackers
to control many (potentially millions) of Windows machines worldwide, making
these hard to filter/blacklist.
The conclusion: Windows flaws enabled hackers to carry out a distributed
denial of service attack, making it impossible for genuine visitors (rather
than living-dead Windows boxes) to receive informative Web pages. Another
proof that Windows has made the Internet a dreadful place.
