According to recent LiveJournal notice virus infected computers are called zombies.
“It's important to keep in mind that denial of service attacks are made possible, in part, by infected computers (known as zombies). Let's all do our part by regularly checking our computers (and maybe our parents' if they're not so tech-savvy) with virus and malware-scanning programs, keeping our firewalls and anti-malware programs up to date, and practicing safe surfing! “
Now that threat is even more scary than the stiff-legged stalkers of horror movie fame. It’s the stiff-legged computers we depend on so dreadfully.
Now that’s frightful.
So practice safe surfing everyone.
from zombie computers everywhere.
