Nearing the end of a fairly uneventful day, we had one last submission about the Storm Worm changing tactics.  As the daily readers may recall, this first hit our radar last Saturday which, oddly enough happened to be my shift as well.  Now we are seeing new subject and phrases that are now adult oreinted.  We are not sure why the change of tactics yet, but will keep you posted.  The attached file is exactly the same, not even a name change on that one.  Odd.

Anyway, have a great week, we'll see you on the flip side.

As if we didn't have enough excitement already with the Gentoo servers being taken for a ride, now we have the Ubuntu Servers being hacked to attack others.  Interesting read, a quote from the article "More than half of Ubuntu’s production servers had to be pulled offline after a security breach caused those servers to actively attack other machines."  On a quiet Saturday we've had some other things pop up, but we are in the process of getting details before we release.
