Re: Virus incident
all of this garbage is coming across european servers (ecrc.net and
cistron.nl--use dig, ping, traceroute, etc., to verify this. check the mail
headers for appropriate addresses). i vote for a universal ping campaign to the
servers involved. it won't disrupt their mail servers but it will get their
attention if enough coordinated replies are sent back to the originating
address. how about it?
