Re: Nachi the new champion bad boy

From the user side, you're right on. From the network side, Nachi is much more malicious.
You mean like bandwidth utilization? Hmm, ok -- didn't know that. I'd think that millions of 142k messages flying around at any given second would be worse, but I am not in the know about these things.

Sven is a mass-mailer, which is bad enough.
Nachi floods the network with a constant stream of pings from every infected machine. That's much more degrading to a network than mass emailing.

On top of that, the spam traversing Adelphia's network is probably more demanding than Sven mailings anyway. I average 100-150 spam emails per day and I haven't received the Sven worm in quite some time now.
