a picture tells a thousand words
I now actively monitor 4 botnets looks like 1 is down currently its the one that Lizard Squad
uses but as soon as it comes back up I will know I have this set to try to connect every 20 seconds
and if I get booted from one it will go back to trying to reconnect to it
all of these clients are just python scripts set to connect to the botnet C&C and pretend to behave like a bot
Nice work monitoring these djcanadianjeff
so if I am connected to and observing these botnets does that make me a member of the NSA spying on these botnets?
oh lol looks like someone just decided to login to a botnet while I was watching lol
so I managed to login to a botnet and get it to DDoS itself
the source code for this botnet is actually online now....
does shaw cable hire people who have these types of skills to use linux to monitor botnets in small to large scale?
Honestly I have no idea. I wouldn't think we would have people specifically doing just this. I'm sure our Network Architects and such are able to scan for these when an issue arises with any of our servers.
