Blue Security Folds

Blue Security is the anti-spam company that, when faced by a counter-attack two weeks ago from a network of zombie PCs controlled by a spammer, cowardly redirected all incoming traffic to its web site to Six Apart’s network (where Blue Security hosted their TypePad weblog), which caused an hours-long outage that brought down all TypePad and LiveJournal sites.

Well, it ends up that Blue Security has decided to fold rather than fight. The spammers are bastards, but considering Blue Security’s track record, I’m not sure this is a bad thing.
