Botnets

Does anyone have any recommendations on books/sites that are doing botnet research. Technical details and the coding behind them (not just the news stories of x number of infections).

Thanks

Re: Botnets

The Honeynet Project (http://www.honeynet.org/), SANs Reading Room (http://www.sans.org/reading_room/) and Cyber-TA (http://www.cyber-ta.org/) are good places to start in this field.

I've mentioned this in another thread (http://www.ethicalhacker.net/component/ ... 1/#msg7621) but Steve Gibsons analysis of DDoS attacks using botnets make an interesting (but slightly dated read). Can be difficult to find though  :'(

Happy Hunting

Re: Botnets

Lance's HoneyNet Project is without a doubt the place to start. But also look at:

Virtual Honeypots: From Botnet Tracking to Intrusion Detection

And more info can be found here with an endorsement by Lance himself:

Hope this helps,

Re: Botnets



Don,

I've taken a look at this book on Amazon a few times but haven't been able to find a copy in store to take a quick shuffty at. I assume from your post it's worth the outlay?

While I can find a tenuous link; is there anyway for me to connection the H affliation-type stuff with the UK (or other) Amazon sites? Currency conversion is starting to make my head hurt ;)

Re: Botnets

Coming off the back of this thread I've found both a review and sample chapter on LSO (don't know why I didn't think to check here earlier) by Chris Gates, thanks man. Review can be found here: http://www.learnsecurityonline.com/inde ... &Itemid=85)

Sample chapter can be found here for your studying pleasure http://www.informit.com/content/images/ ... 1_CH11.pdf

RoleReversal - Short answer...yes. Get the book. Use our Amazon search box on the right side of the page. Every little bit helps.  ;)
