From The Jargon File (version 4.4.7, 29 Dec 2003) :

      [MUD] The state a player is in when they kill their connection to a MUD
      without leaving it properly. The player is then commonly left as a statue
      in the game, and is only removed after a certain period of time (an hour on
      most MUDs). Used on IRC as well, although it is inappropriate in that
      context. Compare netdead.

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

     Said of a MUD character who has frozen in place because of a
     dropped network connection.
