Make Love not Spam
The Register reports that Lycos Europe is promoting a screensaver (see threadlink above) that will send requests to identified and verified UCE spam domains. The screensavers will initiate a DDos attack on these sites essentially rendering them defunct in an effort to deter email spamming. When possibly hundreds of thousands of these screensavers all target the same domain, this is a DDos attack.
DDos attacks are considered illegal regardless of intent...
Some are having 404's with the url, no idea why but there's the raw version.
