Anyone got any ideas as to how we can make AOL more responsive to the
security issues their users create? You don't see these types of
problems originating from Compuserve. I realize that hackers could go to
other resources, but the simple fact is that AOL generates more email
bombers, faked email, and probing hackers than any other single source,
and their abuse @
