“…the nerve center of Spamhaus, controlling servers on five continents…[is] its database [of] dossiers on the 200 most prolific spammers and the addresses of the 8,000 computers they use to inundate people with ads. Spamhaus makes the list available to Internet service providers, which use the information to weed spam from the e-mail boxes of 160 million users.”
According to Spamhaus, “Spam is now 60% of all email traffic on the Western Internet and is forecast to reach 70% by January 2004.”
