Weaselboy spammer jailed

A particularly nasty spammer has been sent to jail for six years:
BRITAIN’S most prolific internet spammer, known to his victims as “Weaselboy”, was jailed yesterday for threatening to kill women working for trading standards and the police as they closed in on his £1.6 million internet scam.
The spammer also threatened to use a Denial of Service attack to disrupt access to all domains ending with '.uk' just before he was arrested for breach of bail conditions. Internet resistance to DoS attacks is still unfortunately just in its infancy.
