Why would any spammer > bother to hack Lycos' botnet? They /already have their own/. Well, if I don't have one now, I could build my own botnet, which takes time and exposes significant risk over a lot of sites as I try to acquire them, or I could look at one site which, if I can compromise it, gives me instant access to a huge botnet. There are lots of places in the world where people/companies store dangerous waste. Some of these dumps are huge, most are small, all are dangerous. Now I read that someone who certainly ought to know better has decided to make yet another of the huge waste dumps, but that's apparently OK, because they exist anyway. -- Jim Segrave [email protected]
