Planet Sony: mapping the spread of the Sony Rootkit infection
More than half a million computer *networks* have at least one infected computer
It now appears that at least 568,200 nameservers have witnessed DNS queries related to the rootkit. How many hosts does this correspond to? Only Sony (and First4Internet) knows…unsurprisingly, they are not particularly communicative. But at that scale, it doesn’t take much to make this a multi-million host, worm-scale Incident.
