AOL not happy with themselves

AOL cannot be very happy with themselves right about now. Despite all the talk about how their network has been killing spam like no tomorrow, now they get to deal with more a more dangerous issue.

A recent study suggests that the AOL network leads ISPs in zombied computers.

Something here just doesn’t make sense. If they lead all ISPs in zombie computers, then how can they be reducing spam so much. One of the main purposes of a zombie machine is to send out spam! Are they only counting spam that doesn’t originate from their own network? And what are they doing to protect the outside world?

With AOL facing a dwindling subscriber base, I wonder if they are going to be able to take the blow of cutting zombie machines of the network, much like other ISPs have done.
