In FPS games, software that points you automatically at something or
somebody is called an 'aimbot', but they usually still have to push
the button to fire. In the context of the wikipedia, that's basically
what this is.

Arguably an aimbot isn't truly a bot, but try telling that to somebody
that has just been shot.
