China cracks down on alleged spam servers

— 2:04 AM on September 10, 2003

China has weathered a lot of criticism for censoring and restricting access to the Internet from within its borders, but their latest move may actually be seen as a positive one by some. The Washington Post is reporting that China is blocking mail from 127 servers allegedly responsible for spam. The Internet Society of China, a state-run organization, identified the spam servers after a month of monitoring email traffic. Curiously enough, 90 of the 127 blocked servers reside in Taiwan; only eight of the blocked email servers are actually in China.
