Interview with Joel Smith of AppRiver

Posted on Thursday, February 08 2007 @ 05:07:26 CET by


The Storm Worm, which made headlines a few weeks ago, was one of the first worms that came out with a known capability for infecting Windows Vista.

Recently, I had the pleasure of speaking with Joel Smith, the co-founder and Chief Technology Officer of AppRiver. AppRiver is a spam filtering and virus filtering company that does pre-filtering on mail, taking the load off onsite hosted servers. We talked about the nature of mail-propagating worms these days, as well as what role third parties are playing in putting a stop to them. One particular tidbit that stood out for me was the future of “Storm”:

”... we actually think that this deployment was a test run. It was so quick that we think they were just testing the grounds, and in the next week or two they may plan a much more sophisticated campaign.”

Could it be on its way back? We also went a bit into what role his company plays in fighting spam and worms.

Check it out at TechSpot.
