killware

(名詞/不可數) 傷害程式 - 一種被非法用來攻擊某人的電腦系統且主要目的在造成人員身體受傷的電腦程式。

根據報導,幸運的是,截至目前傷害程式還沒有成功的案例。它的英文名稱聽起來有點言過其實或過份渲染,或許目前的情況確實如此。然而,實際上,駭客不僅有辦法在精神上傷害我們,也能在身體上傷害我們。

引句:
Unlike malware and ransomware, whose sole purpose is financial gain for the attackers, killware has only one goal – causing physical harm. The name killware appeared in the media after the highly publicized cyberattack on a water plant in Oldsmar, Florida … Fortunately, no killware attack has been successful so far. The moniker itself sounds a bit overhyped, and that might be true at the moment. But the reality is that hackers have a way of not only hurting us emotionally but also physically.
