Too Long; Didn't ReadCommand and Control (C2) frameworks are essential in the Red Teamers and Attackers playbooks. They help hackers of all types to take over networks or turn regular computers into bots, creating a network of remotely controlled computers that can send spam or launch DDoS attacks.
