Blue Security calls it quits after attack by renegade spammer

After the attack, Blue Security embarked on restoring its community-based anti-spam service to its members. But after working closely with its service providers and partners to help resolve the problems over the last two weeks, it has come to the conclusion that the risk of further attacks remains too great. Despite moving hosting providers and implementing security defences, Blue reckons it's unable to safely reintroduce its controversial service without exposing other members of the net community to potential attack.

While I didn't like Blue Security's "fight fire with fire" methods, I don't like seeing the immolated by a spammer either. I have no doubt that it was the bad guys who won in this case.
