Quick Heal Bot Removal Tool: Protect yourself from botnet attacks
Botnets in cybersecurity
We often read about botnet attacks, but what exactly is a botnet? It is essentially a set of computers controlled by cybercriminals that are meant to transmit malware or carry out other malicious attacks on their targets.
So when we say that a computer is part of a botnet it simply means that malicious hackers have taken control of the computer and integrated it into a more general set of computers that they use to carry out the attacks mentioned above.
Attackers can make your computer part of the botnet, infecting it with code called ‘bot code’.
They can infect this computer with your code by sending e-mails containing malicious links or attachments, fake social media posts, or exploiting existing security vulnerabilities in your system.
