I had about half the usual quantity of spam this morning.
Maybe this is a consequence of Microsoft’s action against a huge list of domains which have been thought to be controlling thousands of computers in a botnet? Dubbed Waledac, the botnet is thought to have chucked out 1.5 billion spams from ~90k computers controlled by 277 domains. They reckoned in 18 days last December ~650 million spams went to Hotmail alone….
Microsoft called the technical and legal action Operation b49.
