Spam Outings, Round 7

I foolishly posted Round 6 too soon, thinking this most recent spam run was over yesterday. We'll again start with those in higher learning who never seem to learn:

University of Geneva
Division Informatique
Rue General Dufour, 24
1211 Geneva 4
Switzerland

spammed us on Thursday, 14 January 2010 - 5:32pm via IP 129.194.8.73

and then highlight this agency purporting to "provide leadership" to educators:

eTech Ohio
2323 West Fifth Avenue, Suite 100
Columbus, OH 43204

spammed us on Thursday, 14 January 2010 - 4:21pm and 5:52pm via IP 208.108.141.3

If by "surpass customer expectations" they mean providing more spam than anyone asked for, bang up job, folks! And with that IP resolving to mgmt.ironport.laca.org, everyone gets to play the bonus game of "Do IronPort products inherently have security flaws?"

Finally, here is a exceptionally bad example of network management:

Internetbrands.com
909 North Sepulveda
El Segundo, CA 90245

spammed us on Thursday, 14 January 2010 - 2:19pm via IP 67.201.17.228

If you go to their home page, you'll see a huge list of sites, any of which might be storing your personal data on their compromised machine. May I suggest to investors that now might be a good time to sell NASDAQ:INET?
