Joe St. Sauver, security and spam researcher at the University of
Oregon, points out that botnets are a symptom; the cause is infected
systems.  We can't clean up the bots without cleaning up the infected
systems first.

His paper for the Anti-Phishing Working Group is here
http://www.uoregon.edu/~joe/ecrime-summit/ecrime-summit.pdf

As you read it, ask yourself these questions.  If you think his proposal
wouldn't work, what would you recommend instead?  Would your proposal be
more likely to succeed?  Why?
