Long-Awaited Botnet Report Calls on Industry for Solutions

“The federal government should ‘lead by example’ when it comes to ensuring its computers and internet-linked devices aren’t hijacked by botnets, but industry should take the lead in determining just how those devices should be secured, according to a report released Wednesday.

The report from the Homeland Security and Commerce departments stops short of recommending specific new regulations to counter botnets or tasking the government with developing major counter-botnet strategies.

Instead, government should play an instigating role, the report states.”
