Submission + - New botnet beats Storm, accounts for 32% of spam 4

Stony Stevenson writes: A new botnet that distributes male sexual enhancement pills spam has overtaken the notorious Storm worm botnet as the largest single source of the world's spam according to security vendor Marshal. Dubbed Mega-D, the botnet currently accounts for 32 percent of all spam, 11 percent more than the Storm botnet which peaked at 21 percent in September 2007. The botnet started about 4 months ago but has been steadily increasing since then. It is also using news headlines to trick victims into opening the spam, a technique synonymous with the Storm worm.
