As per recent news, there have been agressive measures taken against the hacking and spamming community.
Blue Frog has developed a program, which essentially does a DDos on their mail servers until they they make the decision to not spam the people on the list (said to be at 1 million and growing) (there is more techical information to this statement, so if I am wrong, just correct me)
The spammers tried to DDos bluesecurity.org and they were able to take them down for a little while.
I also recall some articles on the botnets, and ethics relating to them. One person said, perhaps the only solution to fixing the botnets, is to hack them, and be able to control them, and be able to deactivate them some how. The ISPs are not doing their jobs of disabled customers with botnets, or even giving a shit if that stuff if passing through their networks.
Is this a time of war? Do you think its gonna get worse, and what are your ethical views on this little war that is starting?
