Abstract – In recent years, Botnets have become the most serious problem in cyber security. Today’s various malicious programs are installed on machines all around the world without any permission of the users and transform these machines into Bots. Botnet is most extensive and regularly happens in today’s cyber-attacks bringing about serious risks of our system resources. Botnet is activity in which no of computers are connected in network and they are controlled by Bot-master via malicious attack remotely. Botnets can be facilitated for spamming, traffic sniffing, key-logging, information harvesting and DDoS attacks. Neural network take multiple input and give one output based on weights are given to the different neurons. In our proposed system, different malicious attacks are detected using feed-forward Neural network. Neural network takes multiple inputs as different parameters from dumper packet and based on that, system will detect that given packet is bot or not.
