New Zealand’s zombies aren’t sheep

December 4, 2007

SC Magazine reports that Authorities question alleged New Zealand botmaster.

New Zealand authorities are questioning an 18-year-old man who they say is the head of a gang of cybercriminals that infected 1.3 million computers worldwide and crashed servers at a U.S. university last year.

The sheer scale of the attacks  against computers is all but unimaginable.

What is as remarkable as the audacity of those who undertake the attacks, is the number of computers with weak security that are open to attack.
