So that explains it. From Trojan programs creating viruses and zombies that spam our socks off - to cyber criminals that can cost businesses boatloads with deliberate Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, the bad guys (and/or gals) seem to be running amuck.

And here's one from Network World that may help explain the increase in spam I'm seeing - (and not just the garden variety B2B, but icky stuff).
Interlink VARs can learn more about DDoS and Network Perimeter Defense in the upcoming issue of the Newsletter, and it should actually be in your hands this week, I understand.
