What is a Botnet

Ray discusses Botnets

In this week’s episode of our cyber security Jargon Buster series – Ray Welland talks about Botnets.


Video transcript:

“A Botnet is a grouping of computer systems, potentially anywhere in the world, that has been infected by a malicious piece of software. This software allows them to be networked together by the hacker (or bot-herder), giving them full control of all the “bots” in the network to conduct malicious tasks, including denial of service attacks. Botnets are controlled by a C&C server.”
