Botnets continue to pose a significant threat to network-based applications and communications over the Internet. A key mitigation strategy has been to take down command and control infrastructure of the botnets. The efficiency of those mitigation methods has not been extensively studied. In this paper we investigate several observable characteristics of botnet command and controls (C&C) and estimate the variability in the survival rate of these C&Cs and the factors that are related to such… Expand
