    The Zombie Invasion Is Here!

    We've all talked about it. Some of us have prepared for it. None of us were ready for the Zombie Invasion to happen quite this way. You see, it's our computers who have turned into the zombies. Our trusted computers.
    It's an interesting analogy in the article. An army of computers mindlessly attacking innocents like it was Night of the Living Dead.

    In the weeks leading up to Georgia's military conflict with Russia in August, Shadowserver was among the first to report that hackers attacked Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili's Web site, taking it down for 24 hours. The hackers used a botnet to swamp the site with requests.
    ``We see dozens of such attacks on a daily basis,'' Shadowserver director André DiMino, who co-founded the group almost four years ago, said in an interview.
    Such zombie-computer armies began as the work of lone hackers and evolved into sophisticated tools used by organized crime groups, said DiMino, 42, who goes by the online name SemperSecurus.
    Dealing with bot-infected computers cost organizations an average of almost $350,000 this year, according a survey by the Computer Security Institute, an industry group that promotes computer-security education.
    They're fighting back. Setting up "honeypots" where open computers are used to lure in zombie hack attacks. It's a tough battle, but they'll keep fighting the good fight.
    The good news is, they move even slower than movie zombies and are even more susceptible to shot gun blasts.
