I read your article Gitsnik and thought it was very informative, thank you.
Features of Hybrid Botnet System:
- TCP Storm
- SYN Storm
- UDP Storm
- Delete bot from remote machine
- Reverse Shell
- FTP Crack
- Download & Execute
We can configure it in virtual machines for testing of devices like firewall, IPS, IDS, log co-relator etc. and check handling of TCP and UDP packets by our customized application or pre-installed ones. Botnets are not viewed as as a security product but for a change we use them to find potential of security products we can use disadvantage of botnet into advantage use it in a controlled environment.
As far as Hybrid is concerned, as they aren't updating it anymore, there is no sense in this being a request for it to be added any more. I was unaware of the Jan 17th notice posted on their site, I've been using Hybrid for a while now to stress test web server apps, loading the bot with SQL Injection Payloads XSS payloads, FTP Cracking, reverse shell, IDS/IPS and Firewall stress testing, download and execute, password file retrieval, floods, etc.
Here is a good link on SQL Injection and Bots to give a simple explanation.
Running on a 12gb ram test C&C server you can emulate thousands of attacks thus producing different results with your payload options. It could be seen as a useless skriddie tool for the construction of crimeware, I simply utilize it to stress test apps using as many prongs as I can.
