Abstract

In the quarterly McAfee Threats Reports we offer our readers some charts on the prevalence of messaging botnets. For the last quarter of 2012, we announced the continuing decline in global messaging botnet infections as well as in former leaders Festi and Cutwail (see page 23).

In this blog, I will detail the evolution of the most representative botnet families that we have hunted since October 2010.
