Mining the Network Behavior of Bots

Free registration required

Executive Summary

A botnet is a network of compromised hosts that fulfills the malicious intents of an attacker. Once installed, a bot is typically used to steal sensitive information, send SPAM, perform DDoS attacks, and other illegal activities. Research in botnet detection has been quite prolific in the past years, producing detection mechanisms that focus on specific command and control structures, or on the correlation between the activities of the bots and the communication patterns shared by multiple infected machines.
