Actual spam from a security company or joe job? You decide.
"The CEO of an antispam firm whose service was knocked off-line by a spammer earlier this week claimed that his company was the victim of a sophisticated attack carried out, in part, with the help of someone at a top-tier Internet service provider (ISP).
But some security experts expressed doubts about the company's claims and said they appear to be an attempt to deflect attention from the criticism it has recived for the way in which it handled the attacks.
Eran Reshef, CEO of Blue Security Inc., an Israeli antispam firm, said his company was attacked by a major spammer named PharmaMaster who used a combination of methods to knock out the company.s Web site and the servers hosting its services.
