It seems to be a worm with the effect of a DoS attack. So DoS is the
result, but it's not really an attack. The huge bandwith consumtion with
small packets cause problems at the source rather than at the
destination. More or less like code red, but far worse and without a
fixed destination address.

There is a thread about this starting at NANOG, see
