The FBI has been trying to tackle networks of zombies for some time as part of an initiative it has dubbed Operation Bot Roast.
Why on Earth did they not warn us before??? We could of stocked up on supplies before the obvious panic that is now about to begin...
Many people fall victim by opening an attachment on an e-mail message containing a virus or by visiting a booby-trapped webpage.
Stephen Kings Cell wasn't that far off the mark, however on this occasion the fairly dumb are going to be the vast majority of the first wave victims. Sheesh... board up your windows people!
In a statement about Operation Bot Roast the FBI urged PC users to practice good computer security which includes using regularly updated anti-virus software and installing a firewall.
For those without basic protections anti-virus companies such as F Secure, Trend Micro, Kaspersky Labs and many others offer online scanning services that can help spot infections.
Remember if you encounter a victim aim for the head!!!!!!!
