Speaking about Avalanche, here is a fascinating piece on Conficker computer worm.
For the first time ever, the cyber-security elites of the world have joined forces in a high-tech game of cops and robbers, trying to find Conficker’s creators and defeat them. The cops are failing. And now the worm lies there, waiting…
