I have not used it,but I will say it is a legitimate program in case that was also part of what you needed to know.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

How Bothunter works

Security Forcus wrote about it here and there is a detailed abstract BotHunter: Detecting Malware Infection Through IDS-Driven Dialog Correlation.

SRI International, the maker of BotHunter, compiles the lists on the basis of its own honeypots and distributes them as updates. One of the project's sponsors is the US Army Research Office (ARO).

I want to thank both of you for the info, having tools lined up for problems, boy scout motto and all that, so this one will be a keeper. Thanks again.
