Score one for the good guys. As internet use continues to climb exponentially, so does the threat of evil (okay, so maybe not evil in the definition of the word, but who really likes SPAM?). Spammers kill inboxes by flooding them with useless emails trying to sell replica watches, pharmaceutical supplies, and other random items that most people peg as scams. The problem is that it only takes a few gullible people out of the billions that receive their spam messages to click and buy. This is what keeps them in business. It's scary to read that their computer network was sending 10 billion emails a day, and raking in $400,000 a month.
