Various forms of malware autopopulate central compromised host directories which botnet or drone army operators use to assemble their lists... I've found these to be particularly useful in defending against criminal prosecutions of persons whose Windows boxes were added to such lists during a time period in which computer forensic evidence found in their possession appears to incriminate their computer (and by extension, the computer owner) as a tool of the alleged crime.

I'd like a better history of compromised hosts for this purpose, and suggest that botnet operators be required to publish their logs. ;-)
