Trend Micro's analysis of WORM_MYTOB.KV and WORM_FANBOT.H mention some strings in the HOSTS file indicative of the ever ongoing competition between the botnet malware "modifiers", including the strings;
"HellBot3 have BackDoor in 'HellMsn.h'. The HellBot3 author is an idiot!!!
Play with The best, Die like the rest."
Sheesh, upon reflection, the strings above make me miss Gobbles, whose flames rank right up there as all-time classics.
