FBI tries to fight zombie hordes


news.bbc.co.uk

The FBI is contacting more than one million PC owners who have had their computers hijacked by cyber criminals.

The initiative is part of an ongoing project to thwart the use of hijacked home computers, or zombies, as launch platforms for hi-tech crimes.

The FBI has found networks of zombie computers being used to spread spam, steal IDs and attack websites.

Oh great, now we are all going to get spam that looks like it's coming from the FBI informing us that our systems are hijacked. They will ask you to click here to remove the virus/spyware from your system and when you do, well you know the rest.
