Default Lycos launches DDOS screen saver to attack spamvertised sites

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/4051553.stm

"Internet portal Lycos has made a screensaver that endlessly requests
data from sites that sell the goods and services mentioned in spam
e-mail.

Lycos hopes will it make the monthly bandwidth bills of spammers soar
by keeping their servers running flat out. "

cheap advertising gimmick ? useful idea ?

Plusnet users need not apply :-)
