Skillz to Use…Botnets

A botnet is a number of Internet-connected devices, each of which is running one or more bots. Botnets can be used to perform distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS attack), steal data,[citation needed] send spam, and allow the attacker access to the device and its connection. The owner can control the botnet using command and control (C&C) software.[1] The word “botnet” is a combination of the words “robot” and “network“. The term is usually used with a negative or malicious connotation.
