You know how the current amateur botnet offerings are basing domain lists

Why not base the seed off something like a news RSS feed?

Or how about yesterday's close of the S&P 500 or Cisco stock?  Or
maybe yesterday's Lotto numbers.  Maybe a hash of all the above.

This would drive bot hunters nuts.  Until they reverse engineer the
new scheme.  Since the scheme is in every bot it would just take
some reverse engineering.
