Toxbot is a computer worm that was primarily active in 2005. On infected computers, it opened up a backdoor to allow command and control over the IRC network, thus creating a botnet that at its peak comprised about 1.5 million computers.[1] The two makers of the botnet were arrested in October 2005 and received jail sentences of 24 and 18 months from a Dutch court.[2]
