care to elaborate?


I was thinking that if the spam bot wanted to mass register, the registration wouldn't be official until it was activated via e-mail resulting in alot of spam e-mail. Now even though she would have a ton off spam in her e-mail system the bot's reistration wouldn't officially be complete. lol

there's a perl script around ... lame kiddies download it and make it run (using anonymous proxies) to DOS server where your site is located.
So they try to make the server crash or to annoy server owner.

Doing this they can be proud with their friends for being the most brainless of the crew :P
