Blue Security Gives Up

The war of security company against Russian spammer came to an end when Blue Security closed shop under threat of a cyber war from the spammer.  The war was fought initially when Blue Security attacked a spammer with email designed to give back a taste of the same medicine.  Enraged, the spammer initiated a denial of service (DDoS) attack against Blue Security that migrated to Typepad which is the host of this blog.  We reported those details earlier.  The FBI is said to be investigating the previous attacks.

It's sad when spammers can issue intimidation threats that stick.  Information Week has the story.
