Microsoft targets zombie spammers

Microsoft has filed a lawsuit against groups using zombie computers, saying experiments have shown that the use of infected PCs to thwart spam blockers and pass along immense quantities of junk e-mail is more widespread and disruptive than previously thought.

PC World reports that although Microsoft has just announced legal moves specifically targeting illegal e-mail operations that connect to zombie computers to send spam, a civil suit was filed in August in Washington State’s King County Superior Court.

Microsoft now plans to amend the lawsuit to name the spammers who are taking advantage of consumers.
