Zombie Computers are from normal everyday PC/Internet users that hackers can gain access too if they are on a unsecured wifi network. Oh, and

Ur funny... do you really think we drive around in a car looking for 1000's unsecured wifi??? whether or not that you find a AP thats open you still
need to gain access to a computer to upload the server software that will do the attacks... Its much easier to create a virus that'll use a zero day
exploit to do that for you... All you need to do is put it out in the wild from a library or something then you sit and wait 10-15 days and you have
an army in the making and its all automated... Or else you'll put up mass emails with a website containing malicious code that'll exploit a flaw in
your browser because some poor coder was under a retarded deadline and didn't have time to fix all the buffer/stack overflows... and upload you the
server prog... there's hundreds of getting a botnet up in no time.. anybody can do it you don't need to be a genius... Hell MafiaBoy did it and he's a
Similar results could be obtained with a well carried on smurf attack by using just a handful of computers and a proper setup... Now do you really
think that "hackers" have enough time to lose to do that... Which side are they on you think??? They been f***** over by the government for decades
just because they were curious... Where do you think most of these leaks come from??? The people running the attack on wikileaks are people that were
caught hacking and were given a choice... you rot in prison for the next 10-20 years and you can't ever get remotely close to a computer and we'll
monitor you for the rest of your pitiful days or you work for us and we'll give you a salary that'll allow you to buy all the cool gadgets you want
and we provide the hardware... That's not much of a choice is it???
C'mon for Christ sakes... They put Mitnick in solitary confinement for over 5 years with no possibility to use any phones or get visit under the
pretext he could "Start a nuclear armageddon from a telephone" Its funny how MSM has painted hackers as this dark evil force lurking on the internet
waiting nothing but to get in your PC and to destroy the world when pretty much everything you look around including the internet itself was created
by them in first place... Yet people still buy into this boogieman BS...
Read the "hacker manifesto" tell me if that's the mentality and that of most people here aren't the same beside the fascination is for
conspiracy/knowledge instead of technology... I've seen people here bashing hackers not even realizing they had the hacker mindset themselves...
That said now.... May the one here not guilty of curiosity throw me the first rock...
PS: 1000 of pc in a database??? a database is nothing but...a data base bro the 1000s your talking about in the context of being used for ddos are
