You know your PC is a BOT when...

Before I say anything, lets watch this Video






Now I know what you are thinking. You are probably thinking why would anyone get into your PC. You probably don't use a webcam so you are not worried about being watched. You probably don't use your PC for anything except for some online research. You probably just like to get online to check your facebook status and listen to online music. You probably just use internet to download lectures. So Why in hell would someone waste his time and efforts just to get into your PC? Here is the thing. They have got nothing to do with what you are and what you do online. Your PC is just one of the million PCs they use for Cyber Wars and Cyber Crimes. These controlled computers are thus called 'Zombies', which is an important tool for Cyber Warfares. They might also use your PC for

-Spam
-Phishing
-Adware/Malware
-Spreading a Virus
-Stealing private information


Ever wondered that a spam email hitting your inbox was generated by a BOT (slave PC) just like yours. Imagine how many of those mails are generated everyday. Imagine how many BOTS are there currently.

I am sure most of you already know a lot about this and if you don't, google it. The question is, how many of us have really thought about taking a step? How many of us are really concerned? How many of us want to be sure that they are not being monitored or being used as a BOT for God knows what reason?

In my next post, I will be posting a solution to this. An Advanced Internet Security Solution. And NO, Its not an Anti Virus. And YES, everyone can afford it.

So, You know your PC is a BOT when, You go online!
