About Botnet

Kelihos is a spam bot which inherited most of its code from another piece of malware known as Waledac. The botnet uses a hybrid peer-to-peer structure where bots talk to a C&C server by routing HTTP requests through other bots; however, if the C&C server gets taken down a new one can be propagated via the peer-to-peer network. Despite the peer-to-per network being taken down at least 3 separate times by peer poisoning attacks, the owner keeps the spam flowing by creating a new botnet after the existing one is dismantled.
