Microsoft is out there, fighting spam like a good software company should, while their partner organizations are building daily challenges for them. Interesting to note the emphasis on “human error” in MSNBC – Editor’s note: MSNBC spam error. When some college dropout tries making a few extra bucks by directing some people to their site with a little internet ingenuity, they get five years in the Federal Pen. When a multi-million dollar joint venture between two multinational corporations does it, it’s a mistake.
What really kills me, however, is the detailed manner in which MSNBC explained the breach. How about giving the bad guys your passwords, boys and girls.
Hmm, well at least they apologized.
