What is Botnet

A botnet is a network of computers controlled by a single entity. A botnet is often used to send spam emails, launch denial-of-service attacks, or perform distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks. Botnets are created by infecting computers and IoTs with malware that gives the attacker control over the infected computer. The attacker then uses the compromised system to attack other systems. Botnets are commonly used to spread viruses, steal personal information, and disrupt websites.
