Big torrentsite in US just got hit by a 111 million lawsuit. Hopefully the goverments of other nations will stop protecting these pirates so they can all be hunted down.

They are not only helping to distribute illegal software they are also making money with it. I.E the swedish torrent site made 4 million last year.

In the new issue (coming out tomorrow or the day after tomorrow) of the German magazine called c't there's a longish report/article about trojans, spam etc. .

The last paragraph reported quite a disturbing scene: German ISPs did a meeting with about 20 Russian ISPs.

"We would like to talk about the Spam problem", one of the Germans said.

"Why this ?" was the answer, "Spam, that's our business !"

Disturbing, because it seems to be true, according to the report.

The report noted that some of these activities seem to come from the RBN : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_Business_Network

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
