Just add AOL to that growing list of infected ISPs. Thousands of Comcast customers recently got a dose of the problems of spam as well, when some hacker/spammers managed to figure out how to install a trojan on their particlar brand of router, causing their customers to unknowlingly become the senders of thousands of spam messages! Comcast took action by eventually selectively blocking port 25 from those IP addresses suspected of sending spam.
It’s hard to blame AOL for their latest problem though. They just had a bad (VERY bad) employee, who will hopefully pay the price now. I hope they make an example out of him. I say confine him to a cell for the rest of his life and make him eat nothing but Spam (the Shoulder of Pork/hAM product) for 3 meals a day.
I still always wonder who the heck actually acts upon ANYTHING they read in a spam message??? Who are these people that somehow make spamming worthwhile??? Apparently there are a lot of sad people out there with gambling addiction, erectile dysfunction and micropenis.
