A Literature Review of Historical and Detection Analysis of Botnets Forensics

Ade Kurniawan, Ahmad Fitriansyah
Abstract—In 1988 Botnet was originally developed only as a virtual individual on IRC channels (Internet Relay Chat) while the owner was busy doing activities elsewhere. Furthermore, Botnet incarnated as a frightening specter on the global Internet network with the impact of damage and anxiety on government institutions, private companies, education, health, and even households. According to FBI and cybersecurity agencies estimating losses, the growth and number of attacks using Botnet have reached a worrying point. Therefore, a literature review is needed to uncover all the important spectrums in the Botnet. Hence, this paper will present the two most important spectrums in the Botnet: Historical and Forensic Analysis Botnet. The history of Botnet spectrum was originally developed in 1988 and it was used by operators while they were on IRC channels until the 2006 era - the emergence of the ZeuS Botnet that had made global losses of approximately $110 billion globally. On the spectrum of Forensic Analysis, it is divided into three important aspects: Forensic Analysis Botnet from Software aspect, Forensic Analysis Botnet from Detection aspect, and Botnet Forensic Analysis from Behavior aspect.

Index Terms—Botnet, detection, forensic analysis, historical.
