Botnets for the Average Joe

I just finished reading this Washington Post interview with a 0x80, a h480r running a botnet. They paint a pretty good picture for the average user. If you are in the industry (read “geek”) then this is old news, but it may be a good resource to hand out to those you know and/or love that do not understand the threat and the need for keeping their computer safe.

Shout out to Geek News Central for reporting this one.
