We present behavioral pattern analysis of fast flux service networks (FFSNs) using our database of FFSNs collected over a period of 12 months with our real-time fast flux network detection algorithm . FFSNs exploit a network of compromised machines (zombies) for illegal activities such as spam campaigns, phishing scams and malware delivery using DNS record manipulation techniques. Our results, which build upon our analysis results , show that such networks share common lifecycle characteristics, and form clusters based on size, growth and type of malicious behavior. In particular, we introduce a social network connectivity metric, and show that (Command and Control and phishing), (malware and spam botnets) have similar scores with this metric.
