+ - Botnet Targets Web With Junk SSL Connections->

snydeq writes: More than 300 Web sites are being hit with bogus SSL connections from the Pushdo botnet, including the FBI, Twitter, and PayPal. In operation for three years, the botnet, also known as Pandex or Cutwail, has mostly been used in spam campaigns but has recently been updated to cause infected computers to make SSL connections again and again, an attack that puts more of a burden on a Web site than HTTP connections.
