To increase botnet resiliency, threat actors are now using a hybrid model, rather than a pure peer-to-peer one. In a P2P hybrid network topology, the botnet can survive a takedown of nodes with specialized roles, and reorganize itself accordingly.

It can be quite challenging to disrupt the malicious activities of peer-to-peer (P2P) botnets, but there are proven strategies that can be followed when a specific network has been affected.

Learn about:

  • How P2P/hybrid botnets operate
  • Spotting P2P/hybrid botnet infections on your network
  • Effective ways to disrupt botnets
