    Interesting.
    Throws up some legal/moral issues: they are knowingly allowing a compromised server to be used to hack into other companies .

    and
    "They do warn some victims, he said" . So they know about some attacks & do nothing ?
    do they ignore some attacks from that server so that the hackers wont know they are being monitered

    are they really not much better than the hackers themselves , they are both doing this for profit .
    its a bit like seeing serious crime & ignoring it in the hope of seeing more crime from the same people .

    one of the top ten spammers has had a 'visit' by the FBI .
    Interesting read, he hires other companies to hire spammers who get a % of sales
