Out of the RSA Conference, there is news that there is a new botnet in town, over twice the size of the Storm Worm in town called Kraken. Researchers from Damballa have discovered and tracked it the last two weeks and I'm guessing from news reports have presented their findings at RSA. If you have details of this worm, detection mechanisms, malware samples, etc, please send us some.

P.S. Humorous note... everytime I hear the word Kraken, I think of Ask A Ninja's review of Pirates of the Carribean. I think it's funny at least. No, you can't have that 5 minutes back.
