While we all surf the web, read news, buy products or download songs an entire world of automated minions are performing the dirty work for their human masters. These bots perform actions anywhere on the spectrum between legal and illegal. While some bots legally mine data from public web sites, others harass web sites by sending HTTP requests for different purposes such as content theft, comment spam, scan of vulnerabilities or even attempt to deny service from other users. Whether we like it or not - web bots of all kinds and forms are swarming the Internet.
In this presentation, we will provide an overview into the web bot world as it is seen by Akamai’s intelligent platform, which handles almost 30% of all web traffic every day.  The presentation will cover the following topics:
History of web bots
Web bot types & their purposes
Legal & illegal bot activity (w/ real world examples)
Mitigation approaches to web bots
