We’ve had a report that the popular scambaiting site 419Eater and the anti-scam site Scamwarners are the latest anti-spam sites to fall victim to a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack. Both sites are down at this time. Details are hard to come by, but there’s apparently been speculation that the attack originated from a Russian spamgang. ”
An interesting piece commenting on an underground virtual war happening over the web right this very second. The Denial of Service Attacks are apparently being launched by a humongous Army of Zombie Bot Nets:
“There have been reports that they have built up a botnet containing more than a million computers, not all of which are currently being used for stock and pill spam.”
Those organizations fighting the ‘good fight’ against spam and phishing scams are being taken down and off the grid right now as you read this post. Epic !
