Klarinet Archive - Posting 000058.txt from 2003/10

Subj: [kl] Klarinet service interruption
Date: Fri, 3 Oct 2003 22:33:26 -0400

Around 11:00 EDT a mail form on one of Woodwind.Org's Web customers was
hijacked by a spammer. Mail load was so high that very little mail other
than spam made it out.

I shut down the mail server at 5:00 PM and have spent the last 5 1/2 hours
cleaning out 1.5 million spam messages awaiting delivery through this
server.

The mail form has been deleted (my customers are supposed to use a secure
mail form I already have, but this customer decided that his was better ...)
so hopefully it won't happen again ... at least for a while.

Mark C.
