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.
