Botnets downsize

Source: vnunet

The current trend in botnets is towards a larger number of smaller networks, so that fewer machines are lost when a command and control host is taken down. The article also mentions a phishing trend away from spoof websites and towards keystroke loggers. I noticed such a trend about two months ago -- almost no phishing email, but no corresponding drop in job scams.
