Todd Moeller, 28, was sentenced 27 months in prison in a federal court in New York after he was caught making a deal with a government informant to send junk e-mails -- known as spam -- advertising a computer security program in return for 50 percent of the profits, the U.S. Attorney's Office in Manhattan said. Moeller and Adam Vitale of New York pleaded guilty earlier this year to breaking anti-spam laws and defeating AOL's filter system by using a variety of computer servers and changing the header information on e-mails to ensure they could not be traced, court papers said. <snip> Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
