Anit-Botnet Software Is Just Anti-Malware

This is a really thought provoking piece by Larry Seltzer of eWeek about how the anti-malware industry is trying to foist anti-botnet software on its existing customers. He said they're just repackaging what they're already selling and saying it protects against botnets.

Basically, botnets are just PCs injected with the same Trojans the existing software supposedly protects against, anyways.

He also said that someday the party would be over when a systemic solution to the malware problem will cut down a good share of botnets.
