"Spam King" goes down

One of the world’s top spammers has been arrested and faces criminal prosecution for allegedly sending billions of illegal, unwanted e-mails a day. Robert Soloway, dubbed the "Spam King" by federal authorities and exasperated Web users, allegedly ran his business from his apartment and managed to conceal his identity by constantly shifting domains, including registering with Chinese Internet service providers.

A recent survey by AT&T found 82 percent of the executives surveyed said that cyber security is now a part of their overall business continuity plan. Almost 75 percent cited viruses and worms as a major threat, 45 percent cited hackers, and 35 percent cited Spam.
