Botnet floods UK firms with 250 million spams


A botnet of more than 150,000 compromised PCs was responsible for subjecting UK businesses to a flood of more than 250 million spam emails last weekend. Security services company BlackSpider Technologies said that the spam deluge began over the weekend and peaked on Monday 22 May.

The emails are still being distributed by the botnet, according to BlackSpider, but in fewer numbers. Botnet floods UK firms with 250 million spams - vnunet.com
