    What is a botnet
    The term bot is short for robot. Criminals distribute malicious software (also known as malware) that can turn your computer into a bot (also known as a zombie). When this occurs, your computer can perform automated tasks over the Internet, without you knowing it.

    Criminals typically use bots to infect large numbers of computers. These computers form a network, or a botnet.

    Criminals use botnets to send out spam email messages, spread viruses, attack computers and servers, and commit other kinds of crime and fraud. If your computer becomes part of a botnet, your computer might slow down and you might inadvertently be helping criminals.

    nice writeup, also botnets can check keypress for passwords or even internet saved passwords list to collect your personal information like emails and paypal's etc. It is always good to check your pc often with the proper programs to keep a clean pc.
