Police Trying To Track Down Pyramid Scheme Spammer
from the not-so-bright dept
Police are apparently on the trail of a spammer in Montana who shut down a local ISP by sending out a dictionary spam attack to just about every possible email address it could come up with. The spam itself was simply one of those scam pyramid schemes, asking people to send names on the list some money. Of course, as such, I would imagine it couldn’t be that hard to track down who did this, since it’s likely to be one of the names on the list. However, the sheer magnitude of emails ended up shutting down the ISP completely for a period of time.
