IATE Term of the Week – Botnet

This week we have chosen the term “botnet”, following the approval by the civil liberties committee of a proposal to make penalties for cybercrimes such as identity theft or the illegal access and exploitation of a computer system much tougher.

We invite you to suggest the equivalent terms in the missing EU languages, or alternatives to the existing term in your language if you consider the proposed term inaccurate. Provide your answer with a reliable reference and possibly an accurate definition and/or context.

Contribute to IATE!

A terminologist for the respective language will revise your answer and decide whether to validate them. Given the implications of the process, a delay is to be expected.
