Botnets are networks of ordinary computers, silently hijacked by criminal organisations. They are the cyber-criminal's weapon of choice for serious attacks threatening Europe's economy and the privacy of its citizens.
The Agency's recent statement identifies;
-what is being done in the fight against botnets;
-what options are available for European governments;
-who is responsible for fighting botnets;
-what are the incentives for fighting botnets, underlining the need for a systematic approach, at all levels (local, national, EU and at global level.)
Please read the full Agency Position Statement on European anti-botnet policy, submitted to the Hungarian EU-Presidency Telecommunications Ministerial conference in Budapest on 15 April 2011.
