tsu doh nimh (609154) writes "Spamit, a closely guarded affiliate program that for years has paid some of the world’s top spammers to promote counterfeit "Canadian Pharmacy" branded Web sites, now says that it will close up shop at the end of September, writes krebsonsecurity.com. Spamit administrators blamed the impending closure on increased public attention to its program, which interacted with affiliates via several sites bearing the spamit brand, including spamit.com, spamit.biz, and spamdot.biz. The story notes that Spamit affiliates are thought to responsible for managing some of the world’s most disruptive, infectious and sophisticated collections of hacked PCs or “botnets,” including Storm, Waledec and potentially Conficker."
