    I registered a bunch of domains earlier turns out that some of them were used from what I can assume is malware as they are requesting files that I would not consider normal.

    Looks like they are requesting configuration files or looking for commands

    Anyway the traffic is off the chart... I would estimate at the current rate of hits to our servers you are looking at around a few hundred thousand a day.. the IP addresses are from all over the world so far.

    stumbled onto something here, but not entirely sure what..

    Any Ideas?

    Sounds like you just uncovered an HTTP botnet.

    I don;t see how you can make money with botnet traffic. Maybe you could figure out how to get the botnet up and running again. Or sell the domains to a security company.
