Could spambots finally be eliminated soon?
rhames 2 years ago
Spam, which is one of the things I hate most, took a hit today with the shutdown of the C&C servers for the Grum spam botnet. Great! From what I've read, this was the 3rd largest botnet and was responsible for about 20% of spam messages worldwide. The servers were located in Russia and Ukraine, which seems to have been a pretty safe location for spammers up to now. Are Russia and Ukraine finally on board with stopping spam? If they are (or can be convinced to be), could this actually be the end of the massive spam botnet?
