In an era of growing botnets, zombies and security breaches, IoT systems in particular, need to keep safety a top priority at all times. A bot (short for robot), is a script or software application that performs tasks on command. Evil bots complete malicious tasks and install intrusive software including computer viruses, trojan horses, spyware, adware and other malevolent programs. This invasive software allows attackers to take remote control over any infected computer that’s connected to the internet. Known also as web robots, bots are usually part of a network of infected machines, known as a botnet. Botnets are often created from victim machines that stretch across the globe, unbeknownst to the owners and can be used to spread spam and perpetuate scams. The infected machines are also referred to as zombies. Be sure to check out our related blog post - Top 10 FAQ's About Our Security.
