Here's your chance to make a difference ... tool up and kill a zombie for Halloween.
What ... what are you doing? Put down that baseball bat and chainsaw! I'm not talking the living dead kind of zombie here, I'm taking about the silicon kind that are used by cybercriminals to send spam, distribute malware, and commit identity theft. A zombie computer. What's a zombie computer? It's a computer that's is infected with malware to bring it under the control of the cybercriminals as part of a botnet. Billions of spam emails are sent daily, and 99% of these are sent using zombie computers.
