UBoat – Proof Of Concept PoC HTTP Botnet Project


UBoat is a PoC HTTP Botnet designed to replicate a full weaponised commercial botnet like the famous large scale infectors Festi, Grum, Zeus and SpyEye.

UBoat - Proof Of Concept PoC HTTP Botnet Project


Reviews of popular botnets have shown HTTP-based botnets have a set of attributes that make it difficult for them to be detected. On the other hand, the number of studies focusing on the detection of HTTP-based botnets is relatively low (compared to the number of those on IRC-based and P2P botnets) especially in the HTTP-based mobile botnets which operate on the mobile devices and networks.

The main objective behind the creation of UBoat was to aid security researchers and to enhance the understanding of commercial HTTP loader style botnets so effective countermeasures can be developed.
