Re: No worse than something on a web page

The difference is that BB entries are stored forever and cannot be altered, plus they must always be made available. To kill malware bot network, you find the control host and bump it off the network but with BB you cannot hide anything so the slaves of the botnet will always be able to find their "commands" and other assorted info. If you have a webpage, I can seize control and change it to control the botnet. You have a Facebook page, I can seize that and control it.
