  • Breeding Internet Superbugs | Red Barn
    sideline or reject them Many defenders used many small tricks to protect their inboxes The result has not been that less spam is sent or even that less spam is received on an aggregate basis Things are worse now than they ve ever been I say this as co founder of MAPS LLC by which I hope to establish my credentials in the spam field for those of you who do not know me Today a small number of highly advanced defenders is spam immune only because they are a small number and their techniques are not widely effective against the attackers and a small number of highly advanced attackers can spam at will a far larger population than ever before And the trend is that things are getting worse and getting worse faster than ever before This shows how quick fix action for convenience and or profit by a large number of self interested people can end up retraining re educating and ultimately benefitting the attacking population more than the defending population At MAPS we started with the principle that the IP address who was able to be used for transmission of unwanted bulk material was poisonous and that its owners ought to be more careful and more respectful Rather than rotate our shield frequencies and hope that the attackers could not rotate their weapons frequencies hint those are ST TNG Borg references by saying well you can t send THAT body but please keep trying we just revoked the implied right of end to end communication whenever someone demonstrated lack of proper respect for the implied responsibility of end to end value This was not effective spam got worse in spite of MAPS But spam did not get worse because of MAPS Spam did get worse because of brightmail and spam has gotten worse because of Baynesian filtering Of course Sunil Paul s goal in founding Brightmail was not to stop spam but to create a company that could later be sold which he did to Semantec I believe But I digress Now I m hearing about how people are joining and killing botnets Why It is trivial to recreate them All you re doing is helping to train botnet operators in how to avoid getting caught helping to train rootkit developers in how to capture more computers helping to train botware developers in how to use non IRC C C channels Do you really want to gradually improve the breed and toolsets of attackers at the cost to them of nothing but time What we have to do is a lot of grunt work Law enforcement even of unwritten laws like don t spam me or don t DDoS me is hard boring grunt work Gathering the evidence it takes to put a botnet operator or malware developer in prison can take months or years and the payoff of knowing that jackbooted government thugs are kicking in a door somewhere and confiscating every powered device and every
