cyberslacker

An employee who uses the office computer for personal enjoyment. Since it is so easy to flip between a business application and an entertainment, social or shopping page on the Web, many employees do it routinely if their computers are not locked down. Company firewalls can be configured to prevent access to popular websites, such as YouTube, Facebook and Amazon; however, there are millions of other sites, which makes this approach only partially effective. See lock down.
