CNET: We can’t stop botnet attacks alone, says US government report

CNET: We can’t stop botnet attacks alone, says US government report. “A newly released report from the departments of Homeland Security and Commerce takes a dive into the global cybersecurity issue. A botnet is a network of internet-connected devices that are infected with malware and controlled without the users’ knowledge. They’re used to launch things like distributed denial-of-service, or DDoS, attacks or ransomware attacks that can put critical infrastructure at risk, making them a big concern for the government.”
