  author={David Zhao and Issa Traor{\'e} and Ali A. Ghorbani and Bassam Sayed and Sherif Saad and Wei Lu},
Botnets are becoming the predominant threat on the Internet today and is the primary vector for carrying out attacks against organizations and individuals. Botnets have been used in a variety of cybercrime, from click-fraud to DDOS attacks to the generation of spam.

We study the feasibility of detecting botnet activity without having seen a… CONTINUE READING
