Posted by geeknews at 1:03 AM on December 1, 2004

I am not sure what has gotten the folks over at Lycos all pissed off. But they have created a screen saver that consumers can download. They use the screen saver to essentially perform http calls to spammers websites. Their goal drive them out of business by blowing out their bandwidth. Well I am not so sure ISP’s are going to be happy with Lycos but if you want to use your bandwidth to bring spammers to their knee’s give their screen saver a try. [Yahoo]
