Downstream Liability

DDoS victims might be able to sue the owners of "zombied" machines for allowing their systems to be used in an attack.

By Michael R. Overly

Accident victims can sue a bar owner for the actions of a drunk driver. Crime victims can sue the owner of a stolen handgun for allowing his weapon to fall into the hands of a criminal. And now, DDoS victims might be able to sue the owners of "zombied" machines for allowing their systems to be used in an attack.
