McColo finally cut off from the web November 11, 2008.

Estimated 75% of world spam plus net criminal activity was coming from this network.

JadeEmperor,

Thank You for your nice comment.
Although due to the present world economic crisis, this news didn't make the front page of most papers, the implications of this huge criminal bust touch (EVERYONE) that uses a computer world wide.
Glad I could post some GOOD NEWS for our members and also thanks to The Geek and Mods for moving the topic to the main page so HTG visitors can lean more about what they are up against when they surf the net carelessly.
Kindest Regards,
Rick P.♦:)
