Army funds BotHunter malware detector

SRI International this week announced BotHunter, a network monitoring tool designed to help users detect botnets, viruses, worms, adware and other malware that enters the network through Web surfing, downloading attachments or direct exploit.

It includes an “infection dialogue model,” so if the communication between internal and external devices seems suspicious, BotHunter is supposed to generate a report.

Bothunter works on the Windows, Linux and Macintosh operating systems.

It was funded by a grant from the United States Army Research Office and is available for download at this link.

SRI Institute – originally called Standford Research Institute – is a Menlo Park, Calif.-based non-profit research organization.
