Another interesting article in Security Focus entitled Rise of the Spam Zombies by Kevin Poulsen.

"Pressed by increasingly effective anti-spam efforts, senders of unsolicited commercial e-mail are resorting to outright criminality in their efforts to conceal the source of their ill-sent missives, using Trojan horses to turn the computers of innocent netizens into secret spam zombies."

It's also interesting that many of the targets are high-speed users (DSL and/or Cable Modem).

I've seen comments in several of the newsgroups about this. It's sure can be eye-opening sometimes (seeing what's going on out there).
