Spammer Exposed

By Deane Barker on July 7, 2003

Dutch mass spammer loses grip: Here’s what happens when you try to hide the fact that you’re a spammer, then get caught.

“Dutch ISPs don’t need more evidence. Last week Megaprovider lost several peering contracts (meaning it won’t be able to share network capacity with other ISPs), and some companies have blocked traffic from the ISP and hosting company altogether. The Amsterdam collocation and backbone provider TrueServer disconnected Megaprovider as early as June 2002, after receiving 30,000 spam complaints a day.”

It’s kind of like lifting a rock and watching the bugs run for cover.
