Snoop InfoSystems Antispam Statement

Snoop InfoSystems and all of Alphanet NF hates spam with a passion. No, we never subscribed to any lists for penis enlargement, credit repair, towels, credit cards or mortgage refinancement. No, we do not think that accepting unwanted mail is desirable, be it on paper or via email. No, do not try to find all users of our machines - we run a few honeypots. The main problem is with email that the cost is shifted to the recipient or the people whose proxy, SMTP relay or personal computer used to surf on the internet has been abused with some new-fangled virus like sobig.a (see here for an explanation of the whole issue), which basically means it's theft. In some muslim countries, the punishment is quick and very harsh - they chop off the items used to commit the crime. In the internet, we cannot yet chop off the hands of a spammer, but we usually proceed to blacklist IP ranges since it has proven to be very effective to reduce the amount of spam received by Alphanet NF and it's subsystems. If it hits people with an open proxy, it's though luck, but as long as the system where the spam arrives is mine, I can decide what mail to refuse.
If you want to test if your system is susceptible, download the Perl scripts at Unicom.com and check run them from a distant system to see if your system is vulnerable. If it is, it's probably time to check out what has infected your system. Also, install some decent personal firewall software to see if some yet unknown software tries to connect to another machine on the internet without your consent - sobig.a is surely not the last virus that will install a trojan.
