Linux-Powered Botnet Generates Giant DDoS Attacks

Damn you Linux, I always knew you were up to no good. We need to hurry up and ban Linux before it can do any more harm!

Malware that has hijacked Linux systems for the past year has been recorded flooding targeted websites at speeds of over 150Gbps. The Linux botnet, known as XOR DDoS or XOR.DDoS, is orchestrating attacks on around 20 targets a day, according go Akamai, which in late August blocked two attacks against customers that measured 50 Gbps and 100 Gbps, respectively.
