Botnets are here to stay and they only continue to be developed  into formidable tools used by the Internet bad guys or IBG’s as I call them.  IBG’s love tools like bots.  It provides a really great level of anonymity.  So big return, little risk?  A great combo in any business! 

Proliferation of bots, bot spread worms and the like are certainly on the increase and the threat will continue to rise until more is done to combat the problem.
