'bot' is malware I think. not quite a virus. Like spam on steroids

Bot stands for robot, the form of software that Google, Yahoo, and Bing use to read and archive the site. (Such software is sometimes also called a spider.) it is not viral and reads only the posts, as it does not have access to any of the admin side of the site (that is, no access to passwords or other personal data)

This is WHY real Anti-virus/malware software is a MUST ! ! !

AVOID EL CRAPPO substitutes AT ALL COST, cuz that's exactly what happens, it'll COST you ALL YOUR INFORMATION on your PC ! ! !
If BRUTE-FORCE isn't working, you're just not applying enough of it ! ! !
