Spray.se, a Swedish portal, search engine, internet place to hang and the second widest used free email host has begun a new campaign to attract more Spray users.
The evil geniuses at Starring have put together a campaign that doubles as a DDos attack. Seriously.
Banners on all large Swedish site declare: "Make love not Spam" and take people to spray.se/makelovenotspam where punters can download a screensaver. The screensaver 'visits' (hits) well-known spam sites whenever it's in use. Sites that sell dildos, porn and Vigra are targeted. The more people that download and use the screensaver, the more often these sites will be 'hit', creating the effect that the targeted sites will be very slow to surf as their servers work overtime to answer all requests.
"We don't make it so that any of the sites crash, we just slow them down and make them difficult to surf. With more people using the screensavers, the slower their sites gets, and then we hope they might understand that it's just not worth using Spam as they do." Said Calle Sjönell to Resumé.
