Artists against 419 - feature and interview

Posted on Wednesday, November 09 2005 @ 03:45:34 CET by


Fed up of Nigerian 419 scam emails? A group called Artists Against 419 certainly are - they perform a virtual Flash Mob and aim to take down the fake banks' web hosting.

Interesting stuff for anyone who's suffered under the weight of spam.

Taking down the website is a classic Denial of Service attack, but the Artists are very clear about stopping the attack before that occurs. They're not taking down the website - they're just pushing the limits of the cheap-and-cheerful hosting the scammers have used. This would appear to keep them short of causing legal damage..
