Linux boxes make ideal botnet controllers
The cold, harsh truth is that Linux systems are pretty much ideal for being compromised for use as a botnet controller, ironically more often than not being in control of a virtual army of infected Windows PCs.
Billy McCourt, a SophosLabs UK researcher, wants your help to determine just how prominent these Linux based botnet controllers are. In order to do this he is asking that anyone who is not running some kind of anti-virus solution on their Linux boxes to run the small rudimentary Linux/Rst-B scanner and contact the labs with the results if they show that you have been infected.
