Zombies are always hostile and will relentlessly attack the player on sight. They have poorer senses of sight and hearing than survivors. Zombies are a significant problem when encountered in groups - alone they are a mere nuisance.
Currently, the zombies in DayZ are fairly slow compared to the zombies from the mod and one can easily jog away from them.
In recent updates the zombie spawn rate has been increased thereby making zombies more of a threat to the player. The chance for a zombie attack to cause bleeding has been reduced, although the player will still lose blood when hit by a zombie.
