Amazon's EC2 Having Problems With Spam and Malware
jamie pointed out a story about the recent problems Amazon's EC2 service has been having with malware and spam. "EC2 space is now actively blocked by Outblaze, and has been listed by Spamhaus in their PBL list [...] However as Seth Breidbart noted in the comments, 'note that Amazon will terminate the instance. That means that the spammer just creates another instance, which gets a new IP address, and continues spamming.' True enough - as described, instance termination simply isn't good enough."http://slashdot.org/slashdot-it.pl?f...8/07/02/169222
