Anatomy of a Worm by Kyran

It’s about the worm I wrote targeting, aptly named ”gaiaworm”. This is the third version of the worm and the first time I’ve ever really written a paper.

Its an interesting paper that details what he has coined a "Pseudo-Reflective" Worm, in that while it uses a reflected XSS vector, it uses a persistent on(in?)-site spreading mechanism - in this case the PM system.
