The Calm Before the Storm?

Bruce Schneier's Crypto-Gram is usually an interesting read, and October's was so for a fine description of much of what is known about the Storm worm (quite a lot) and its controllers (next to nothing, except that they are skilled programmers who continue to refine their technology). The scariest part was Schneier's closing remark:
Personally, I'm worried about what Storm's creators are planning for Phase II.

If he's worried I guess we should all be worried.

A link would be helpful...

It would indeed, so I have added links to the main Crypto-Gram page and to this October's issue. Thanks for the comment!
