Abstract: The ability of attackers to rapidly gain control of vast numbers of Internet hosts poses an immense risk to the overall security of the Internet. Once subverted, these hosts can not only be used to launch massive denial of service floods, but also to steal or corrupt great quantities of sensitive information, and to confuse or disrupt use of the network in more subtle ways. We present an analysis of the magnitude of the threat.
