A botnet is, simply put, a network of infected computers that can be directed in a variety of malicious activities on a large scale (you can think for example of DDoS attacks). It is always possible that a certain address or address range has been used in the past by a botnet. However what you describe is pretty general, so its hard to say for sure. Especially for free VPN services this is not uncommon.
