Below is a periodic public report from the drone armies / botnets
research and mitigation mailing list.
For this report it should be noted that we base our analysis on the data
we have accumulated from various sources.

According to our incomplete analysis of information we have thus far, we
now publish two reports.


The ISP's that are most often plagued with botnet C&C's (command &
control) are, by the order listed:

* We would gladly like to establish a trusted relationship with
  these and any organizations to help them in the future.

* We would especially like to note the serious and prompt response by
  PNAP, as well as the serious efforts made by The Planet.

* By previous requests here is an explanation of what "ASN" is, by Joe
  St Sauver:
  http://darkwing.uoregon.edu/~joe/one-pager-asn.pdf

* Clarification: the definition of "count" is how many C&C servers are
  located at said AS. We replaced it to be called "Unique IPs" and
  "Open-unresolved" accordingly.


The Trojan horses most used in botnets:
---------------------------------------

1. Korgobot.
2. SpyBot.
3. Optix Pro.
4. rBot.
5. Other SpyBot variants and strains (AgoBot, PhatBot, actual SDbots,
   etc.).

* There seems to be an increase in Energymechs used for botnets running
  on *nix machines.
