Botnets are networks of computers which have been infected with malware and placed under the control of a hacker or group of hackers. They are typically used for attacks on websites, spamming, fraud, and distribution of additional malware.
Oddly enough, I have been away from home for the past week and none of my computers were left on. I do have a fairly well connected home with several Foscams, a DLink DNS-325, DirecTV boxes and a SlingBox on my network but are any of those candidates for malware? I checked the log on the DNS-325 and did not see anything unusual. I do have WiFi but it is secured with WPA. Any tips on how to further investigate the source?
