||Botnets are networks of compromised computer systems used to perform various criminal
activities on the Internet.
This thesis gives a detailed analysis of the well-knownWaledac botnet, based on results
from reverse code engineering and sandboxed execution. The analysis results in methods
to detect Waledac bots on a network, and an effective attack aimed at overtaking
the entire botnet.
In light of the analysis and a overview of the current situation in botnet defence the
future of botnets are discussed.
