“SPAMIS.COM/.ORG/.CC/.INFO”, a/k/a Robert Soloway, has continued to send out spam containing the text of my monthly column for eSecurity Planet. It was not sent by me. It was not sent with my permission or authorization.

And please don’t send me complaints, copies of the spam, etc. I’m getting enough as it is, thanks!

In fact, looking at the spams that I have personally received (yes, the twit is spamming me with my own article…), he’s using a network of “spam zombies” — virus-infected and hacked PCs that are hijacked to relay spam. It’s a sign that this guy is a pretty sophisticated criminal. I’m sure his mother is very proud.

According to the SpamHaus “Registry of Known Spam Operations” here’s his latest info:
