From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Botnet ...
Quote:
The Dutch police found a 1.5 million node botnet and the Norwegian ISP Telenor disbanded a 10,000 node botnet. Large coordinated international efforts to shutdown botnets have also been initiated. It has been estimated that up to one quarter of all personal computers connected to the internet are part of a botnet.

Proper firewall and Anti-virus should do the trick.

A quarter of all personal computers sound like a bit high number and as far as I see it, he is just guessing?

Quote:
Up to a quarter of computers on the net may be used by cyber criminals in so-called botnets, said Vint Cerf, one of the fathers of the internet.
