Botnets - the future of on-line crime


Recommended Posts


On 11th February a US teenager who used the online nickname of "Sobe" pleaded guilty to delinquency charges resulting from his surreptitious installation of adware on hundreds of thousands of computers. The computers "Sobe" used had been hi-jacked and co-opted into a network of computers called a "botnet".

I wish for a lot of things, but one of them is for a brain that understands the hows, whys, and wherefores of botnet herding. There's certainly more money in it than herding sheep.

Ah well, maybe next lifetime.
