Beware The 'Spacker'

The latest issue of RISKS has a link to an article on Wired, about crackers who are working with spammers, providing them with services such as cloaked hosts, to thwart the efforts of anti-spammers.

Whilst this is a pretty disturbing trend, what’s more disturbing is the name Wired has decided to give to these guys:

"Spackers"…

okaaay…

If you grew up in the U.K. during late 70’s/early 80’s you’ll know why I’m sniggering.

I think I’ll start calling spammers "Joeys".
