Also known as Cutwail or Pandex botnet. Pushdo is a well known spam bot issued in 2007 and discovered in 2010. Pushdo is also a DDoS botnet used to launch attacks on SSL encrypted websites. Pushdo sends thousands of SSL malformed connections to SSL port 443 on the victim’s website in a very short time; the server responds with SSL negotiation errors and eventually gets exhausted.
