*boggle* ok. so where do I start .. explaining what a botnet c&c is? or what "cloud" is? or ... oh forget it. *plonk* On Fri, Mar 30, 2012 at 3:57 PM, <chrish at consol.net> wrote: > > and again btw, regarding one of the irrelevant parts of this thread: a botnet is not a criminal registering a /20, installing 2^12 boxes with a bot-trojan on it. it's a bunch of independent windows-boxes connecting to some services used as c&c channel (who don't know anything about all this). so persons taking the botnet-angst seriously, actually really have to desperately want to take action against windows... sbdy registering a /20, installing "bot-clients" on his boxes - that's called "cloud" i believe. and i don't think it is correct to assume they are all illegal. like i don't think cars should be illegal just because some of them kill people... > and while we're at it: looking at guns - posession of a gun is illegal. i don't think it's a good idea trying to make ips illegal... -- Suresh Ramasubramanian (ops.lists at gmail.com)
