Internet spam legend is jailed
Programmer’s creation sent ‘trillions’ of e-mail ads
January 31, 2007
A computer programmer who developed a program to automatically send unsolicited advertising e-mail was detained yesterday, the Seoul Police Agency’s cyber terror response center announced. The programmer, who created what has become a legendary program for spewing spam, is a 21-year-old male college student, police said.
The police said several trillion advertisements ― trillion as in 12 zeros ― for Internet sex sites and private lenders had been sent to e-mail users from the name “Kim Ha-na” in 2003 and 2004. The use of that fairly common Korean woman’s name embarrassed many namesake women, prompting the Korea Information Security Agency to release a report outlining its efforts to halt the flow.

Menos um spam na minha caixa. Leia tudo.
