Steve Gibson (famous for Spinrite and other products) has turned his focus to Internet security. His site recently had a Denial-of-Service (DOS) attack. Using his usual resourceful skills, he was able to turn the tables on the hackers and monitor their activities, and finally confronted them on the IRC, giving them quite a scare. His story about it is very informative about how DOS attacks work, and how computers can be taken over without the owner's knowledge, and used for the attacks.
