Spam: Well Known Swedish Developer Arrested for sending Spam

The Greek police have arrested a Swedish programmer, claiming that he advertised and sold pharmaceutical products on the Web, a police spokesperson confirmed to ZDNet UK on Friday.

But Rick Downes, the programmer in question, denied the charges and claimed that the Greek authorities have no evidence against him. He says that the only link between him and the spam appears to be that three people who had received the spam were using a computer that he had fixed at an earlier date.
