Zombie : Child Process Exits before Parent process and Parent does not grab status of child process using wait() or waitpid() system call; Child process is in Zombie state.
Orphan : Child process whose parent has been killed and inherited by init process.
A zombie is a mythical creature, a dead human that's somehow woken up and moves about again. An orphan is a child that has lost both parents.
A zombie process is basically a process that stops responding, to put it in simple terms.
zombie processes are inherited by the 'init' process (PID 1)
A zombie process is a process that has finished running, but is still there.
Usually any orphaned process is owned by the 'init' process (process #1)
If processes run on nodes that have derailed so to speak or the tm.watched yk has been activated, the process is considered orphaned. The watch deamons are set to kill the orphan process on default.

A zombie process is a process that completed execution but still in process table. When a process ends, all of the memory and resources associated with it are deallocated so they can be used by other processes. However, the process's entry in the process table remains. The parent can read the child's exit status by executing the wait system call, at which stage the zombie is removed After the zombie is removed, its process ID and entry in the process table can then be reused. However, if a parent fails to call wait, the zombie will be left in the process table. In some situations this may be desirable, for example if the parent creates another child process it ensures that it will not be allocated the same process ID.
A zombie process is one that should have closed, but is still active in the process table. This is usually caused when a parent process that spawned the process has not yet realized that it has completed, or wants to create another process of the same name without using the same process ID.

i personally belive yes check out my page GLitch378 No, despite the zombie apocalypse depicted by hollywood. Being a zombie is not a contagious condition - you do not become a zombie by being killed by a zombie or by simply being dead. It requires a voodoo priest to make each and every zombie and the process is not trivial.
A zombie (or defunct) process is one that has ended but for whatever reason the process information has not been removed from the process table. No code or data segments are allocated to the process anymore but the system has not removed it from the process list, so it appears to be still in the system (but isn't because it doesn't have any resources). In the past the only way to get rid of zombie processes was to reboot the system to restore the system proc table. It is possible to try and get a parent process to execute a 'wait' system call to try and remove it - see related links.
