This project, joint with UC San Diego, pursues a multi-pronged approach to addressing the "botnet" problem from within using an inter-disciplinary approach that combines our experience with network-level infiltration of botnet command and control, program analysis of malware binaries, and natural-language processing of human communications that support the botnet ecosystem.
