pp. 18-20
A university team has developed a technique that uses large groups of computers, such as those in many existing networks, to defeat botnets, which are large groups of computers that hackers infect and commandeer to launch spam, distributed denial-of- service, and other attacks. The University of Washington researchers say their Phalanx system would be relatively inexpensive to implement and could scale to fight botnets of any size.
