IM client botnet


i started getting random IMs from *coho names on AIM.  turns out they’re part of an IM botnet who’s purpose is to annoy people, no other malicious actions.  it appears you can opt-out too.

(11:23:58 AM) HalvedCoho: Have you ever been to a circus where there was a seal?
(11:26:38 AM) nadams5755: i have a bucket
(11:26:38 AM) halvedcoho is now known as HalvedCoho.

(11:27:10 AM) HalvedCoho: who is this?
(11:27:22 AM) nadams5755: your mother.
