Re: botnet representation

 Malware researchers actively exploit and alter the characteristics of 
large botnets so that you can never trust the numbers.  Who's to say I 
didn't install 100 copies in my virtual lab for personal research :-). 
Additionally, if you can take over the command station, you win.  The 
problem is that much of the protocols are encrypted.  The trick is to 
find a vuln and use it against the botnet to deactivate it, or at 
least, shrivel it a bit...hehe
