My bad! ZDNet actually was sending out spam!

I must apologize to the bloggers over at Commtouch. It turns out a website hosted at ZDNet, partially retired in 2004, was the culprit.

I must apologize to the bloggers over at Commtouch. It turns out a website hosted at ZDNet, partially retired in 2004, was the culprit. What did I learn from this, you may ask? Two things.

  • I have to communicate more effectively with my IT staff, otherwise I will again claim we are doing something that we are not and vice-versa.
  • In situations where I am responsible for systems, I will vow to take more effective inventory of all attack surfaces and fully eliminate all those which are no longer needed for system operation, be it website, service, or server.

I am striking through my previous post, and leaving this one for eternity to prove I can and do eat humble pie.
