Second Life: Virtual Worlds Botnet Attacks

hey, do i smell history repeating itself? bots on irc used to be useful too, and then used for local flooding. only later did they become the botnets that they are today. :)

so, from automated playing when you are not around to keep stuff active (rings a bell?) to botnets that throw… privates at people. :)

worth a read. i always love when the real world and the virtual meet, whether by marriages or by physical world police taking complaints because “someone stole my weapon on world of worldcraft!!”

we do live in interesting times. :)
