Abstract

Earlier this month a number of articles surfaced on the research and disagreements with regards to the size and classification of a large bot net named Kraken. At the front line of the debate was SecureWorks and Damballa. Secureworks claims Kraken is actually Bobax and estimates the bot net to include over 185,000 compromised systems. Damballa disagrees stating that Kraken is an entirely new bot net with a size over twice as large as Storm. Semantics aside no one disagrees that Kraken/Bobax is among the largest of the known bot nets if not the largest.
