"More than 900,000 customers of U.K. Internet service provider Telewest have been blacklisted by one of the most powerful antispam groups on the Web."Published: May 10, 2005, 7:38 AM PDT By Will Sturgeon Special to CNET News.com "The Spam Prevention Early Warning System (SPEWS), whose blacklist is referenced by many antispam controls, imposed the block in response to the high number of Telewest customers whose machines have become compromised and taken over for the purpose of sending spam. Last month, Silicon.com revealed that some of Telewest's Blueyonder.co.uk home subscribers were sending hundreds of thousands of e-mails each day--a sure sign of an open relay, pumping out spam."
