Zombie:

  • In the West Indies, a zombie is a will-less, automaton-like person who is said to have been revived from the dead and must now do the will of the living. There are at least three usages of the term related to computers and the Internet.
  • 1) In the UNIX operating system world, developers sometimes use the term to refer to a program process that has died but hasn't yet given its process table entry back to the system.
  • 2) On the World Wide Web, a zombie is an abandoned and sadly out-of-date Web site that for some reason has been moved to another Web address. It's a ghost site that appears to have moved. Zombies contribute to linkrot.
  • 3) In at least one form of denial of service, one or more insecure Web servers are compromised by hacker s who place code in each Web server that, when triggered, will launch an overwhelming number of requests toward an attacked Web site, which will soon be unable to service legitimate requests from its users. A compromised Web site that is used as an attack launch point is known as a zombie.
