Today’s malware can monitor and analyze processes, steal passwords and log keystrokes, and, in some cases, can even modify the host’s hard drive to change the contents of files and spread out-of-date software to other computers on the network.
Botnets are networks of compromised computers controlled by a single, malicious attacker. Bots compromise machines, infect them with malware, and manipulate them to perform the attacker’s bidding. They are often used for “DDoS” attacks. Bots are also used as the “backbone” for other types of attacks. For example, a botnet could be used to spread spam, or to send out phishing email.
ELEANOR HAYWARD December 14, 2013 at 3:13 pm I remember as a Glaswegian Glasgow City Council named one of our streets Mandela Place and gave him freedom of the city of Glasgow whilst he was still incarcerated. A man of peace and so much forgiveness for the years spent in prison. Truly a unique individual and never forgotten.
FELICIA POOLE December 14, 2013 at 3:45 pm Who can forget Nelson Mandela, and be forgiven for not being able to forgive? He was a man whose spirit was a beacon of hope in a world darkened by the politics of hatred and revenge. He led from the front in the struggle for an end to apartheid and for freedom and justice. He was a leader whose moral stature inspired millions. I have a feeling that as long as the world stands for freedom, the world will be inspired by the life and example of Nelson Mandela. I will miss him.
KERRY McNEILL December 14, 2013 at 3:26 pm There was no electricity in my village when Nelson Mandela was released. I remember the excitement and people sang songs about him. I have never forgotten his name.
JONATHAN JONES December 15, 2013 at 6:22 pm Mandela was the best (a long time ago). A real hero of the world. Working with the ANC and so many groups, organizations, people, etc. in South Africa, bringing about a peaceful change in it's society. He was a true hero, not just for South Africa but for the world. 827ec27edc
