Submission + - Security Researchers Targeted by DDoS Malware

httptech writes: "Recently I was targeted for a DDoS attack by a custom-compiled DDoS trojan. During the course of my investigation into the attack, I not only learned which malware author was behind the attack, but that similar attacks have been taking place targeting anti-rootkit developers and anti-spam researchers- particularly those involved in exposing pump-and-dump stock spam. Though similar in nature, the attack patterns are different, meaning there seems to be a growing trend among a few virus authors/stock spammers to try and silence those who stand in the way of their profits."
