Metal (Score: 2, Insightful) by email@example.com on 2014-03-14 13:41 (#JC) TURBINE started round about 2011. 3 years ago. It should scale much faster than your average botnet. 3 years is a long time; they're already everywhere they can be. If you're ever interesting enough they use it and encryption and obfuscation won't do any good at all. They own the bare metal.Is that why you're all so very very quiet? I thought "everybody" was scheduled for at least five more years of deep denial. Re: Metal (Score: 1) by firstname.lastname@example.org on 2014-03-15 17:28 (#K0) A botnet is exactly what it is. I feel the euphemisms of "implant" (malware) and "implant network" (botnet) to sound very much like newspeak.
