more about the ongoing neonazi spamattack
The newsmagazine Der Spiegel reported 80 percent of the right-wing spam it received came from a server at the University of Rostock, in northeastern Germany. Others came from large networks owned by Deutsche Telekom, several originated in other countries.
Analysts say the right-wing spammers used the latest methods, perhaps even working in tandem with virus programmers, to "seize" other computers and use addresses found there to building large distribution lists.
Tracing the originators can be difficult in these cases, although the network administrator at the University of Rostock told Der Spiegel that they have taken the server where many of the e-mails came from offline and will work with IT security experts to trace the spam back to its original source.
