- Think twice before using spam to attack Microsoft. USAToday reports the U.S. District Court of Eastern Virginia handed the company control of over 275 domains Microsoft alleges were used in a malware attack. Microsoft then contacted the companies which owned the sites, asking them to identify and desist the attacks, but they didn't respond or comply. Microsoft then took the company to court, and this latest ruling essentially grants Microsoft the right to shut down domains it perceives as threats.
- Facebook has fixed the bug that allowed a spamming worm to automatically posts messages to users' walls earlier this week. The messages purported to be from friends who had found shopping bargains at Best Buy and Wal Mart. Computerworld reports, the flaw was the second one in a week that let spammers flood the service with phony promotional messages for items such as free iPhones. Last week, it was a bug in Facebook's photo upload service that a spammer exploited to post thousands of unwanted wall messages. The newest work was found by researchers at F-Secure and Sophos, two anti-virus vendors.
