Prowling Peer-to-Peer Botnets
Featuring: George Kurtz, Tillmann Werner, and moderated by John Pescatore, SANS Director of Emerging Security Trends 

Join George Kurtz, author of the best-selling security book Hacking Exposed, and his team of top technical experts for quarterly live webcasts featuring cutting-edge cyber security topics, discussions, and live demonstrations.

Peer-to-peer botnets have become the backbone of the cybercrime ecosystem. Due to their distributed nature, they are more difficult to understand and contain than traditional botnets. To combat this problem, we have developed the open-source framework *prowler* for peer-to-peer botnet tracking and node enumeration. It combines efficient crawling strategies with the ability to plug in implementations for custom application layer protocols.

In this live webcast, attendees will learn how to use prowler to reconnoiter and track peer-to-peer botnets. We will show some real-world examples, interpret the results, and discuss pitfalls and challenges. We will then examine how these results can be used in attempts to attack and take over peer-to-peer botnets.
