SeanM Tech: Hackers attacking hotmail? false alarm? (11) RE: Tech: Hackers attacking hotmail? false alarm? 26 Aug 03

It's happening all the time on *all* major mail servers as far as I can tell.

I work tech support for a webbuilder company, and we use a rudimentary Outlook system. We're still averaging tens of thousands of Sobig.F messages daily. At the height, I believe we were averaging around 250k for the first two or three days.

That's for somewhat less then 10k active members.

Now imagine Hotmail's accounts... or Yahoo's... or AOL's...
