Blaster laster

Hotmail still accepts blaster mails gleefully.

A week later, with all the press it got, I would've hoped that Blaster worms are defended against. Making insecure software enabling this is one thing, but doing nothing about it is another thing.

Incoming mails that had worm during last 5 days:

MS owned Hotmail still accepts wormed mail; nobody else does.

For Hotmail, I finally gave up on adding filters. Net result is that every day, my mailbox gets full.

May be that is good business sense, so that I will pay more to get more space that can withstand more virus files?

  1. Is it the Blaster or the Sobig worm?

  3. Microsoft want rid of hotmail. MS, are using this virus attack to their advantage. Who wants a service that is swamped by junk mail laden with viruses. All other free mail vendors value their customers\users, and so don't drown then in spam.
