    Unveillance has published an interesting video that shows the global activity of computers that are unknowing participants in a botnet.

    The activity was recorded on Monday, June 11, 2012, between 9:00 and 9:01 EDT.

    So the next pertinent questions is; how do you tell if your involved in this and if you are how do you remedy it? Although very interesting to see that most of the activity is in Europe.

    Well for one minute most of the activity was in Europe...

    How do you stop your pc being part of a botnet? Make sure it's updated and using a decent anti-virus/malware app.
