Denial of Service Flood - Update

Just an update on a previous blog...

Just about two weeks ago, one of our customers, a small trucking company, was under a severe "Denial of Service" spam attack.

Averaging about 1 million bogus messages a day, their use of the CMS XE-Filter product saved their operations and bought them time to ride out the email storm.

Over the period of the attack, XE-Filter refused 20 million spam email messages that tried to reach their server.

But now the onslaught appears to be just about over. And if it is just a lull in the storm, well they still have XE-Filter, their first line of protection.

So again, XE-Filter preformed admirably, but our customers knew it would.
