Submission + - Botnet targets Web sites with junk SSL connection (goodgearguide.com.au)

angry tapir writes: "More than 300 Web sites are being pestered by infected computers that are part of the Pushdo botnet. The FBI, Twitter and PayPal are among the sites being hit, although it doesn't appear the attacks are designed to knock the sites offline. Pusho appears to have been recently updated to cause computers infected with it to make SSL connections to various Web sites — the bots start to create an SSL connection and then disconnect, a process that is repeated."
