Zombie Master Masquerade

The Metaeye Security group (bonus points for not capitalizing the “e” in “eye”) have released ZmbScap (Zombie Scapper), a Perl script designed to detect and disable various zombie DDoS tools (including Stacheldraht, Wintrinoo, Mstream, Tribal Flood Network, Trinoo, Shaft, Trinitinty, and Entitee). It achieves this by attempting to issue a kill command to the infected host – disable as the next best thing to disinfect.
Sure, some of these DDoS tools listed are about to celebrate their 8th birthday, and the passwords used in the script seem to be of questionable accuracy, but it’s the idea of impersonating the bad-guy for good purposes that warrants the mention.
