Signature-Based Botnet Detection and Prevention
The Internet is used extensively for important services such as banking, business, medicine, education, research, stock trades, weather forecasting etc. Most of these services must be processed in a timely manner. However these services are delayed, degraded and sometimes completely disrupted because of unavailability of internet. The inherent vulnerabilities of the internet architecture provide opportunities for a lot of attacks on its infrastructure and services. Behind these attacks is a large pool of compromised hosts sitting in homes, school, business and governments around the world.
