Beware of malicious bots committing fraudulent activities

Malicious bots are automated programs that are designed to infect hosts and steal information. File-sharing and spam bots are the two most common types that pose a risk to personal or corporate security. The former tricks users into clicking a malicious link, while the latter floods the user’s inbox with spam mail, making it easier to identify. In addition to antivirus software, monitor your logs to proactively tackle bots before any critical damage is done to your data.
