This paper lifts the veil on botnets and the cyber-criminals behind them. It analyses the history and growth of botnets and investigates one of the most common attacks
executed by botnets: the Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack. It examines several real-world DDoS attacks suffered by companies of various sizes.
This paper then outlines several security measures that can help mitigate application and network DDoS attacks. While organisations must heed the growing specter of botnets, there are a number of tools at their disposal that can mitigate botnet security threats.
