While “botnets” have become the root cause of many cyber attacks, most research has focused on detection and defense against botnet. There has not been extensive research focus on attack technology. In order to win the defense against future botnet attacks, it is important to study the design of potential botnets. In this paper, we present a hierarchical hybrid P2P botnet which is difficult to be monitored, hijacked, and shut down. In contrast with traditional P2P botnets, it has no bootstrap procedure and could defend against Sybil attack to some extent. In addition, a reconstruction scheme is proposed. Most important, the presented botnet is close to practical implementation. More attention should be paid to the defense against the proposed model.
