Two of the Spamhaus Project's researchers will be on hand to answer questions relating to the Q3 2021 Botnet Threat Update. These are the very researchers who help compile the report, and for up to 10 minutes, you will have the opportunity to ask any botnet command and control server (C&C) related queries you may have.

Our researchers will be online for up to 10 minutes to chat about botnet C&Cs.
Spamhaus tracks both Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and domain names used by threat actors for hosting botnet command & control (C&C) servers. This data enables us to identify associated elements, including the geolocation of the botnet C&Cs, the malware associated with them, the top-level domains used when registering a domain for a botnet C&C, and the sponsoring registrars and the network hosting the botnet C&C infrastructure.
This report provides an overview of the number of botnet C&Cs associated with these elements, along with a quarterly comparison. We discuss the trends we are observing and highlight service providers struggling to control the number of botnet operators abusing their services.
