What does it mean when you dream about a zombie?

A person in a dream who acts like a zombie could indicate one or more “emotionally dead” persons in one’s life, people who have a devitalizing influence on one’s vitality and enthusiasm.

zombie

A computer that has been covertly taken over in order to perform some nefarious task. It is estimated that millions of PCs around the world have become zombies and, under the control of a third party, routinely transmit messages unbeknownst to the user.

Zombies are widely used to relay spam so that messages come from thousands of different IP addresses, avoiding detection and expanding volume at the same time.

Denial of Service
Before spam became such a popular pastime, zombies were used to transmit phony messages to a server in order to slow down service and disrupt the network. A "pulsing zombie" is one that sends bogus messages in periodic bursts rather than continuously to avoid detection. See zombie bot, zombie language, zombie script, zombie scrolling, zombie VM, spam, denial-of-service attack and botnet.

(dreams)
Dreaming about the living dead may carry a powerful message. If you are “walking around like a zombie, ” it usually means that you are emotionally disconnected from things going on around you. You may be experiencing unhealthy detachment and be unable to appropriately feel positive or negative emotions. Currently, you may be out of touch and outside of the main flow of life. This dream could positively sever you and help you to become aware of emotional issues and circumstances in daily life that are difficult to face.
