Ponder this question. Are there botnets that are sexy and make you more attractive? I got this idea from the Animal Planet (Discovery) show: Monsters Inside Me: Can a Parasite Make Me Sexy? Consider a good botnet (parasite) for a minute. Is something like the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator or Microsoft’s Systems Center Configuration Manager something like a command and control system for a good botnet? Would that be considered a sexy parasite? Is this just a symbiotic relationship that is good for all?

So, think about it… what are you infected with today that’s doing you good?

Well… maybe it’s not always good to be infected with a parasite so that’s why I say: thanks for reading & let’s continue to be good network citizens.
