Default Storm Worm: Sophisticated Malware

This is an article about the Storm worm, how highly sophisticated it is and how we've never seen anything like it:

Pretty frightening to us techies. This thing doesnt behave like any other worm. Definitely worth reading.

There are actually a couple other worms out there like this one. They arent as widely known about. But if you know people in that world, they all know about them.
