From today’s headlines:
“Comcast is pushing a new program nationwide that warns customers if they might have a bot infection. It puts a semitransparent overlay on the top of the website you’re viewing, warning you that you may have a bot installed if the provider detects botnet traffic from your residence.
From a post by Carl Hutzler, AOL’s postmaster (via John Levine), from 2005 (five years ago):
Filters and blocklists are band aids.They do nothing to solve the problem.
Messaging Providers taking responsibility when their networks are commandeered to send spam is the solution.
Looks like some ISPs are finally waking up to that
