A Botnet is another type of malware that targets PCs. In the case of botnets, multiple PCs are generally infected and compiled together to perform a task only achieved with mass computing power. With many PCs infected all at once, the attacker has the collective power of all those PCs to create an attack. In the past, attackers have used this specific type of malware to spam certain websites with so much traffic that their servers can’t handle it and they go offline. You need your PC for your business, not to be used as an agent in an attacker’s arsenal.
