Bray on zombies

Bray on zombies. Bray on zombies: Hiawatha Bray has an overview of the current vulnerability of the entire net to compromised machines that can communicate with us: “Chris Wysopal, a research scientist at the Cambridge Internet security firm At Stake Inc., said a large and growing number of zombies reside in living rooms… Indeed, Julian said, so many machines are infected that vandals no longer have to create zombies. Using software easily available in the computer underground, they can identify and enlist ready-made zombies.In principle, denial of service attacks are as simple as a ball-peen hammer to the skull.”  [JD on MX]
