Questions Botnet

IMPORTANT NOTE: I MAKE THIS BOTNET TO LEARN MORE ABOUT NETWORKING AND I WANT TO SHOW THE POWER OF A BOTNET. I WILL ONLY INFECT COMPUTERS I OWN OR ON FRIENDS COMPUTERS WHO ARE WILLING TO PARTCIPATE

Hello all,

I want to make an botnet and I have some questions. Keep in mind that i am new to networking.

Alot of botnets use a IRC server but is this needed? Can i also use a program that just takes the incoming "hey i am infected" message and saves this on a file for later use? And if this is possible, should i then use TCP or UDP?

Also, i will infect computers by simply let the user run my "botnet.exe", but will the firewall block this connection? And how can i prevent this because it will not be an realistic simulation/demonstration if it will give the user an popup.

hmm there are botnets out there ready for use ,dont need to make one
but if you insist dive dipper in networking :P

Ayy lmao, don't have to put the disclaimer, we assume people are here for non illegal purposes.

Anyway, you have a lot of questions, but I suggest you start with networking and programming basics first. After that you can start doing socketprogramming, I think while you're doing that, most of your questions will be answered in a more fundamental way then some vague answer here.

Anything is possible if you know how to do it... and if it's plausible and actually physically achievable. If you're afraid a firewall will block your bot connecting outside, just have it map itself within a process that communicates outside and use that. Easy!

Well, if you're really that worried about a firewall catching a connection attempt, you could use UDP. This won't guarantee that you'll slip by the firewall, but if you combine it with some other evasion techniques it should be just fine.
