    Abstract

    This paper discusses the prevalence of bot-infected computers in Taiwan and China and why bot-infected computers are so prevalent in Taiwan and China. Reports have shown that Taiwan and China are the top two countries in the Asia-Pacific and Japan (APJ) region where bot-infected computers are located. However, there is still little empirical study on the reasons why China and Taiwan rank so high in terms of bot-infected computers. Based on interview data collected in 2008 and 2009 in the Greater China area, this paper analyses the prevalence of bot-infected computers in Taiwan and China from five perspectives: technical perspective, user perspective, political perspective, cultural perspective and business perspective.
