An anonymous reader writes "Network World Fusion has an article about the Internet Storm Center's inner workings. The writer follows the ISC during the day of the MyDoom-O outbreak (the one that hit Google et al.). The article talks about running W2K in vmware on top of SuSe Linux. A practice very common in malware analysis to isolate yourself from various ill effects of the malware. Other open source software receiving a mention in the article is everybodies favorite packet analyzer Ethereal."
