Botnet Detection & Botnet Removal

Botnet Detection

Botnet Overview

For those of you who have not heard a botnet is a network of bots that is controlled by a botmaster. I know this sounds far fetched to say the least. These BotNets are big business. Botmasters can demand huge ransoms, and if you don't pay they can take your server down using D.O.S. attacks.

Trend Micro's RUBotted is a great free tool for the job. It does a quick review of your system and can tell you the status of your computer. Download RUBotted here. This app works on Windows 7, Vista, Windows XP, and Windows 2000. You must also have 250MB of free hard drive space available, which is really no biggie.
