Botnets are nothing new. They’ve been around for years, used by criminals and hackers alike to carry out nefarious deeds. But what is a botnet, really? A botnet is simply a network of devices that have been infected with malware. Once infected, these devices are controlled by the botnet operator—in other words, the person who created the botnet. In this blog post, we will explore how to make a simple botnet and use it to attack other devices on the network. By understanding the basics of how a botnet works, you can protect yourself from harm and learn more about how malware operates.

What is a Botnet?

A botnet is a collection of compromised computers that can be controlled by a single attacker. A botnet usually contains tens or hundreds of infected computers. The attacker uses the bots to conduct spam, virus, and other cyberattacks.

How does a Botnet Work?

Botnets are networks of infected computers that are controlled by a botnet master. The purpose of a botnet is to carry out specific tasks, such as sending spam or launching attacks on other systems. Botnets can be created through a variety of methods, including using malware and exploiting vulnerabilities in affected computers.

To create a botnet, attackers first need to infect vulnerable systems with malware. Once the system is infected, the attacker can use a command and control (C&C) server to direct the bots to launch attacks or send spam. In some cases, botnets can also be created through exploits that allow unauthorized users access to systems without proper authentication.

Botnets are often used for illicit activities, such as attacking competitors or spreading viruses. They can also be used for legitimate purposes, such as disrupting services or creatingdistributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks. Becausebotnets are distributed across many machines, they are difficult to detect and takedown.

How to Make a Botnet?

Making a botnet is not difficult, but it does require some prerequisites. The first thing you need is an army of machines that are vulnerable to remote access. You can find these machines by scanning the internet for publicly exposed machines or by using a vulnerability scanner.

Once you have your army of machines, you will need to create a malicious software program that can be installed on these machines. This program will be known as a botnet command and control (C&C) server. To install the C&C server, you will need to use a hacking tool called telnet or SSH.

To start with, you will need to know the IP addresses of all the machines in your botnet. You can get this information by using the scanning tools mentioned earlier or by simply asking users who are running infected computers if they would mind sharing their IP address with you.

Once you have the IP addresses of all your bots, it is time to configure your C&C server. The first thing you will want to do is set up a basic authentication scheme so that only authorized users can connect to it. Next,you will want to set up a domain name system (DNS) server so that your C&C server can be found by other bots in your network. Finally,you will want to set up a gateway port so that other bots in your network can connect to it.


A botnet is a collection of infected computers that are controlled by a hacker. These systems can be used to launch distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, steal data, or carry out other malicious activities. In this article, we will teach you how to make your own botnet using freely available tools and resources. Once you have created your botnet, you will need to protect it from being discovered and destroyed.
