Wow. It’s a verbal epidemic.
Here is another, related, definition from here :
A ‘botmaster’ is another programme that is controlled by someone that issues commands on those IRC cannels which the bots residing on the systems execute. A trend of the last few years is that huge ‘botnets’ are being built, and even being hired, in website affiliate programmes that pay out money for each visitor or even in distortion schemes aimed at commercial companies.
The bots are the infection itself.]]>
