Hello folks. This post comes to you courtesy of Ed Stoner and Aaron Shelmire from the Network Situational Awareness group at CERT. They write:
Recently there have been some statistics published on botnet Command & Control (C2) channels. These statistics claim that 94.58% of botnet C2 channels are under the .com top level domain (TLD). While it's impossible to accurately comment on those statistics without knowing the methodology used to arrive at them, we at CERT have been doing research concerning malicious domain names that arrives at a different result.
