The growing problem of 'Botnets'

Data Doctors Radio Program | Ken Colburn & Brandon Disney Most users of the Internet have no real understanding of the term botnet or worse, have never even heard of them, but every one of us is impacted every day by these rogue networks.

This collection of silently infected computers can be remotely controlled to send out spam, infect more computers or perform a Denial Of Service attack to bring down targeted websites.

The worst part is that many of you reading this right now are unknowingly part of a botnet that is attacking your cyber-neighbors on a nightly basis.

Listen in as the Data Doctors explain what these malicious networks are, how you can easily become a 'zombie' in the army and how you can protect yourself from the growing threat of botnets.

Join us every Weekend as we discuss your computer questions. It's the Tech Show for Non-Tech People! You can post questions on Facebook .
