Botnets have been known to be a significant threat to corporations and governments alike. Many companies have only just been able to create adequate defences by co-operating with the Computer Emergency Response Teams. However the botnet evolution has grown to be far more deadly.
This Podcast is an excerpt from Dr Jose Nazario's seminar at the First 2008 conference where he showed how Botnets are evolving to become robust distribution networks for malware and phishing attacks and defences being created to counteract this new threat. Dr Jose Nazario is a senior security researcher at arbour networks. You can read more from Jose on http://asert.arbornetworks.com/author/jnazario/
