technique

To create a botnet, the attacker can use several technique to scan vulnerable machines. The attacker first collects information about a large number of vulnerable machines to create a list. Subsequently, they infect the machines. The list is divided by assigning half of the list to the newly compromised machines. The scanning process runs simultaneously. This technique ensure the spreading and installation of malicious code in little time. Which technique is discussed here ?
