A botnet is a network of compromised computers under the control of a malicious actor. Each individual device in a botnet is referred to as a bot. A bot is formed when a computer gets infected with malware that enables third-party control. Bots are also known as “zombie computers” due to their ability to operate under remote direction without their owners’ knowledge. The attackers that control botnets are referred to as “bot herders” or “bot masters.”
Botnet detection can be difficult, as bots are designed to operate without users’ knowledge. However, there are some common signs that a computer may be infected with a botnet virus (listed below). While these symptoms are often indicative of bot infections, some can also be symptoms of malware infections or network issues and should not be taken as a sure sign that a computer is infected with a bot.
Botnet detection is useless without having botnet removal capabilities. Once a bot has been detected on a computer it should be removed as quickly as possible using security software with botnet removal functionality. Once the process of botnet removal is complete, it is important to remain proactive in botnet detection and prevention efforts.
