Hey…I actually found a few minutes for a quick blog post!
Just a quick post to check out the report that my friend and malware researcher Greg Feezel was mentioned in a report over at Hostexploit.com. He contributed data to this report. The report was on the McColo web hosting firm which is apparently responsible for sending 75% of spam world wide! If you didn’t know, McColo was taken offline a few days ago and there has been a massive decrease in spam across the Internet. If you want more information on McColo check out Brian Kreb’s article here. Brian is actually one of the guys that helped shut this firm down based on some of the reporting he did.
Goes to show you that we can do some good as security professionals if we all work together!
