PLATO system
The PLATO system was designed for Computer-Based Education. But for many people, PLATO’s most enduring legacy is the online community spawned by its communication features.PLATO originated in the early 1960’s at the Urbana campus of the University of Illinois. Professor Don Bitzer became interested in using computers for teaching, and with some colleagues founded the Computer-based Education Research Laboratory (CERL). Bitzer, an electrical engineer, collaborated with a few other engineers to design the PLATO hardware. To write the software, he collected a staff of creative eccentrics ranging from university professors to high school students, few of whom had any computer background. Together they built a system that was at least a decade ahead of its time in many ways.

PLATO is a timesharing system. (It was, in fact, one of the first timesharing systems to be operated in public.)

Botnets, Zombies and Remote Control Attacks

“Bot networks,” or botnets, are collections of computers under the control of a single entity, usually without the knowledge or consent of the owners of those computers. The individual infected computers are running software known as a “bot” (from “robot”), and the computers themselves are often referred to as “bots” or “zombies.”

Botnets are used by the controlling entity, sometimes known as a “botherd” or “botherder,” to perform some function, which may involve distributing tasks across the individual bots (such as cracking passwords) or having them work in concert (e.g., engaging in a denial of service attack).

Botnets have become one of the primary tools of criminal activity used on the Internet today, and botnet activity is driven by economic considerations–to make money for those using them. Botnets provide a technology infrastructure which, in conjunction with a creative division of labor, disperses the risks faced by online criminals, allowing them to grow their operations to a larger scale without fear of being captured and prosecuted (Abad, 2005; Berinato, 2007).
