The only thing I don't see is a way to remove these bots!
Not everyone knows how to even look at their machines for signs of these
bots. Heck, I know most of my guys here don't even know how these bots

It would be impossible to educate everybody but it's better to try than

That again. Thats not an operational problem. Thats a help desk issue. Operational is mail-ops nailing these infected people and net-ops cutting them off at the knees and yanking their connectivity. This is exactly the direction we want things to be heading.
