The Unhealthy Association of Trojan.Delf-FPW with Botnets

A botnet is a large network of computers infected by Trojans like Trojan.Delf-FPW. Criminals may compromise a computer and then insert threats that allow them to control the infected computer and use it to carry out attacks. Thousands or even millions of infected computers may be coordinated to carry out attacks simultaneously. Applications for these kinds of attacks include sending out massive quantities of spam email messages, data theft, money laundering and overloading specific servers or websites with requests in what are known as DdoS attacks. There are usually several threat components involved in these attacks, ranging from an initial threat infection that establishes a backdoor on the victim's computer to the actual booted threats that allow criminals to take control of the infected computer and relay commands to it from a Command and Control server.
