Internet and the Bots

Wired reports on the recent e-crime Operations Summit:

Frontline internet-crime fighters from security companies, law enforcement agencies, banks and e-commerce sites huddled at a secretive conference last week to confer on new tactics in the war on cybercrime. And while nearly everyone agreed the internet has become an infected and dangerous breeding ground for malware and scams, no one could quite agree on what do. ...botnets: the internet's zombie armies of compromised PCs that malefactors use to send spam, host fake websites for phishing attacks or bombard websites with spurious traffic in a distributed denial-of-service attack.
