What is a zombie

A “Zombie” is a computer that is unknowingly being used to transmit SPAM.

Viruses and SPAM go hand in hand. To avoid detection, spammers send their emails from a distributed network of unknown computers. Spammers & Virus Authors get together and you end up with a worm in your email that is sending SPAM to everyone in your address book.


SPAM: The best defense is to understand

Technology alone cannot stop junk mail - nor can governmental intervention - and neither can we.

There are a variety of ways that you might end up on a spammer’s mailing list; there are various methods they use to send you spam. Your best defense is to understand the nature of spam and choose the best strategy based on your environment and internet usage habits. The trick is to get rid of the spam without losing legitimate email.
