Bot herder websites come and go Posted by Mikko @ 18:20 GMT

Websites that specialize in distributing source code and tools for malicious bots and botnets pop up and disappear all the time.

Examples of high profile bot sites that have disappeared include ryan1918.com and 0x90-team.com.

Another such site, known as "Neo, The One", went offline on Friday. This site was hosted in Argentina.


In fact, some bot distribution sites have started to charge money for downloading source code of bots such as rxBot, ForBot or SdBot.
