In order to prevent single point of failure, many botmasters deploy their botnet architecture with peer-to-peer (P2P) communication protocols, such as Kademlia, Bittorent, and Overnet
. These botnets, called decentralized botnets, can use any of the bots or P2P nodes to issue commands to other peers or gain useful information.
While Storm uses Overnet
for P2P communication, Waledac utilizes HTTP communication and a fast-flux based DNS network extensively.
 also developed an effective methodology to estimate the amounts of index poisoning and pollution in the file sharing system; they used data-harvesting platforms on FastTrack and Overnet
to collect the required data.

Data, one of the firms exhibiting at m-business expo in London later this month, voice is still voice, whether it's carried on a circuit or packet switched network.
