The BBC tech show Click bought a botnet to show how at risk we are for cyber crimes.
The botnet the BBC crew acquired contained 22,000 hijacked PCs around the world. The Click team will show how effective spamming can be done with a botnet already of that small size. Botnets can also be used of course for other things like DDoS attacks.
The Click reporters purchased the botnet over the net in some chat room.
There is a preview of this BBC report on the BBC site available. The full BBC Click show will air on Saturday with the full report.
