And what would be the relevance of such an attack?  What are they trying achieve?

Assume i no absolutely nothing about what you mean BTW.

Well, one who controls the big botnet could control the market?

Anyways, It's probably just a few skids who got pissed because they can't afford to mine. Grin

It could be done by anyone who wants a competitive advantage in mining.  If you run a solo mining factory, and own a botnet, this would be the thing to do (assuming you are evil).

Even if you aren't evil it's a good idea to prepare for attacks.
Such as not putting all your assets into 1 pot (deepbit or mtgox...etc).
So far, my assets are stuck in one pot. Grin

I just switched when the one I use is under attack.  The one I switched to didn't seem to pay as much though.

Yeah, I've tried all the kinds of pools but no one beats deepbit when it comes to earnings.
