Send-Safe spam tool gang evicted by MCI
US telco MCI Worldcom has caved in to mounting pressure and booted a site that sells spamming software off its network. Send-safe.com, which sells a package that uses broadband-connected PCs infected by viruses such as SoBig to distribute junk mail, has been left searching for a permanent home after 18 months with MCI.
Send-Safe.com moved briefly to a Russian hosting firm over the weekend before pitching up on Lycos' Tripod network for around six hours before once again been evicted. The site is currently out of commission but the Send Safe package itself remains operational.
