Freeze all neighbor nodes for a short time. Disabling security nodes buys you extra time to remove them.

The Shocker is a Brute Force Offensive Program which stuns all connected, uncaptured nodes for a period of time equal to the "Freeze Time" statistic. This can give a player time to safely install longer programs such as Protector or Blaster. Security Nodes are also unable to retaliate while stunned. Firewall regeneration of all affected nodes is prevented throughout the duration.

The Shocker will remove itself immediately after it has stunned the connected nodes, freeing up the slot for an additional program.

On this video you can see the basics of how the Shocker program can be used to take down a network.
