This presentation goes beyond simple explanation of what a botnet is and dives into specific bot technologies and how they are used in the commission of online crime. When the presentation is complete, attendees will have a better understanding of botnet technologies, how these technologies are leveraged to enable physical world crime and what some of the motivating factors that have led malicious code authors to add specific features to their bot malware.
