Internet has become an inevitable part of the peoples' lives. While internet offers a mass of useful services which makes communication easier and faster than ever, it presents some threats too along the way. Over the last few years, botnet has risen to become the primary source for various internet attacks such as DDoS attacks, spamming, phishing etc. Accordingly, a great deal of research has focused on methods to detect and extenuate the effects of botnets. In this paper, the authors have analyzed the feasibility of outgoing and incoming traffic i.e. intrusions and extrusions, to detect P2P based botnets.
