Spam king pays Microsoft


Former 'Spam King' Scott Richter (was ranked one of the world's top three spammers) - has agreed to pay Microsoft $7m to settle an anti-spam lawsuit.

The lawsuit dates back to December 2003 and this comes a month after Richter was removed from the Register of Known Spam Operators maintained by the Spamhaus Project. Richter was dropped from the ROKSO list after his outfit OptInRealBig.com cleaned up its act and stopped sending out junk mail that violated US anti-spam rules.

Microsoft has said it will use $5m to expand its net security partnerships worldwide and $1m will be given to New York community centres to spend on computers.
