Lycos, spammers trade blows over screensaver
Contributed by: G3nu1n3, at 12/03/2004 07:54:00 PM.

Lycos is caught in a tit-for-tat struggle with spammers, just days after releasing a free screen saver software program that uses computer down time to swamp Web sites associated with spam campaigns.

At least one Web site targeted by Lycos's "Makelovenotspam" screen saver program, www.moretgage.info, has changed its Web page, forwarding requests it receives to http://makelovenotspam.com, a Web domain that distributes the screen saver program, according to F-Secure. The escalating war with spammers comes amid mounting criticism of the screen saver from antispam experts and a crackdown by ISPs (Internet service providers) on the program.

Lycos launched the "Make Love, Not Spam" screen saver Wednesday, but was circulating a beta version of the software before that. The screen saver promises to "spam the spammer" by sending a steady stream of requests to a list of Web sites that have been used in spam campaigns, slowing those sites. The list of sites to attack is downloaded by the screen saver program from a control server operated by Lycos.
