170,000 PC's Hijacked A DAY

Unread postby Bertha » May 30th, 2005, 1:11 pm

Enjoy from Bullguard:

Internet security company CipherTrust on Thursday breathed life into its ZombieMeter, a new system that tracks traffic from hacked, or zombie PCs, around the world, CNET reports.

The ZombieMeter tracks the number of new zombies that appear per hour and is designed to help identify Internet security threats.

A zombie is a computer--typically connected to the Internet via a broadband connection and without security software to protect it--that has been infected by a worm or virus and is used remotely to launch denial-of-service attacks and send spam and phishing e-mails.

So far this month, CipherTrust has found an average of 172,009 new zombies each day. About 26 percent of those were found in the European Union, 20 percent in the United States and 15 percent in China, the company said.
