RE: Time to check the rate limits on your mail servers
The only thing I don't see is a way to remove these bots! Not everyone knows how to even look at their machines for signs of these bots. Heck, I know most of my guys here don't even know how these bots work.
For a compromised system, insert CD, reinstall!
If a pro cannot clean it out safely, then i cannot imagine our typical homeuser would be able to... and with some luck he installs a firewall and antivirus next time, after reinstalling his system for the 4th or 5th time.It would be impossible to educate everybody but it's better to try than sitting around blocking this and that and not really solving the issue at hand. My .02 cents.
