Storm drops the dots
         


As mentioned yesterday, the Storm worm has been sending 4th of July-themed spam.  I commented then that the worm gives itself away by using dotted-IP notation in the URLs it sends. It seems that the developers are aware of this weakness: the latest run of Storm worm spam uses actual domain names.
