    This is news?

    This is the method that all of the big Windows worms have used for the past several years, and DDOS attacks using these botnets are also nothing new.

    I suppose it's news that the script kiddies are now hiring themselves out for money instead of doing it for fun or political motives, but I don't see how this changes very much for the rest of us.
