Spamhaus warns of more spam with name loss


The anti-spam group Spamhaus Project warned that more junk e-mail could be on the way as it prepares to lose its domain name thanks to a company it has accused of sending spam.

Executives at the U.K.-based Spamhaus Project said Monday they expect a federal judge in Chicago will soon sign an order that would suspend the domain spamhaus.org because the U.K.-based group has refused to recognize the U.S. court and comply with a $11.7 million judgment.

Spamhaus warned that the order could unleash up to 50 billion junk e-mails a day on computer users worldwide, though legal and technology experts were skeptical the effect would lead to millions of clogged inboxes. Groups warns of more spam with name loss - Security - MSNBC.com
