As per my view Link Rot means the links which are bad, broken or rotten. You can remove such links from your google webmasters tool by using disavow option.

If you wont remove such links then you will get caught by google through penguin update. So its better to search for such links and remove it.

 Link rot is created when a Web page is moved, taken down or reorganized. Clicking on a rotten link usually results in a 404 error, which includes a message that the page cannot be found. Link rot that occurs due to website reorganization can be corrected with redirects. However, some link rot is inevitable as websites do simply disappear.

Internet terminology for the situation where hypertext hyperlinks cause nowhere because Web websites have eliminated Websites or restructured them. Also known as obsolete hyperlinks.

Linkrot scans a site for inaccessible links (http error 404, 500, etc.) and saves a log with bad links that you can open in Excel. It's a Windows console application developed in C# (.NET 2.0 stack). Simple, single thread crawling for dead links, broken links, dangling links.

Linkrot is the tendency of hypertext links from one Web site to another site to become useless as other sites cease to exist or remove or reorganize their Web pages.

Link rot is the tendency of hypertext links from one Web site to another site to become useless as other sites cease to exist or remove or reorganize their Web pages. A recent survey showed that almost one of every four Web pages in the survey sample contained a bad link.
