Political site exploited by spammer

Just a reminder to everybody to make sure their servers are secure. A political action group called Downsize DC had their web server exploited by a spammer who sent 50,000 spams through it.

Remember, and unsecured system is an attractive nuisance which not only hurts the owner of the server, but everybody who gets the spam that's relayed through it. Downsize DC may think of themselves as the victims here, but they also owe an apology to everybody who got the spam that was sent from their servers.
