First he exposes the Russian Business Network and forces them to go underground, now he nearly single-handedly stops 2/3rds of spam.

Most tech journalists, myself included merely comment on the latest product drivel or market trends. Brian is one of the only investigative journalists actually looking at the roots of cybercrime and fraud. On Tuesday, he contacted the major ISPs hosting McColo– a notorious hosting service whose clients include a long roster of cybercriminals. At least one of those ISPs pulled the plug, and until McColo’s clients are able to relocate we should enjoy some relative quiet.

Congrats Brian, awesome work. This also shows the only way we can solve some of these problems- through proactive investigation and offense. We can’t possibly win if all we do is run around and try and block things on our side.
