'Serbian Badman' virus not so bad after all. The Register is calling it a hoax in that a DDoS attack just isn't possible with the alleged virus.

Well, they are right about a DDoS but they totally blew it out of porportion. What NetSec is calling a DDoS, is the ability to write a script that will cause the Sub7 trojan to execute the ping command in MS DOS mode on the victim computer.

A far cry from an ACTUAL DDoS tool.
