Botnets have become ingloriously famous in the last years.
A bot is a short way to refer robot. It’s a type of software or script for executing commanded actions. Criminals infect all kinds of devices with it to control them. Botnets incorporate large numbers of bots, also called zombies, for scaring the planet with their attacks.
Botnet attacks can be really dangerous. It’s up to the evil minds behind every attack. Just try to imagine there are massive “armies” integrated by thousands, even millions of zombies computers globally spread that will obey someone blindly. It sounds bloody scary, doesn’t it?
