Anatomy of a Botnet


    One of the greatest challenges in Internet security today is how to contain the global scourge that is the botnet. Botnet authors and their criminal organizations are continually developing innovative ways to recruit new victims into their networks and monetize them, using Internet worms, malware sites, illicit software and other techniques.

    “Anatomy of a Botnet”, a whitepaper from Fortinet, looks at this technique for creating a criminal zombie network from your corporate network, including:
    – Who are the people behind them?
    – Why are they so prevalent, and what motives are behind their use?
    – How do attackers create and deploy a botnet infrastructure?
    – How can you determine if a system is already part of a botnet?
