Infiltration of Botnet Command & Control
and Support Ecosystems





This project is a joint effort between researchers at UC San Diego and UC Berkeley to address the botnet problem from within using an interdisciplinary approach that combines network-level infiltration of botnet command and control, program analysis of malware binaries, and natural-language processing of human communications that support the botnet ecosystem.

The project is funded by the Office of Naval Research through the MURI program under Grant No. N000140911081.
