cyberslacker

An employee who uses the office computer for personal enjoyment. Because it is so easy to flip between business and personal use on a computer, many employees do it routinely if their machines are not locked down. Company firewalls can be configured to allow only business-oriented websites, but this can often be circumvented by clever maneuvering. See lock down.
