The applications of P2P botnet node-based detectionAuthor(s): Changrong Liu, Huabei Nie, Jianqiao Shen
Botnets can not only be implemented using existing well known applications, but also be constructed by unknown or creative applications. P2P botnets with low resource requirements have developed rapidly. In this paper, a novel P2P node-based detection is proposed, which exploits the node profile of the novel behaviors. Our experimental results show that it not only successfully detects known P2P botnets with a high detection rate, but also detects some unknown P2P malware.
