Brian McWilliams, author of Spam Kings, writes about the sudden growth of Iraq's IP space, and a surge in spam emanating from it. Part of the problem is that Iraq's newly created ISPs have yet to issue acceptable-use policies, leaving open the possibility for a spam industry to arise within the country. And, as Brian notes, "junk emailers are often born out of an amalgam of technical skill and economic hardship. Iraq's certainly got a lot of both of those elements right now."
