Wide ranging and very informative interview with Stefan and his associates. He is a lead researcher into the spam economy.

Excellent explanation of the tools and processes used in the multi-University study of the spam and malware (including Storm) economy that lead to the ground-breaking paper that revealed the small number of banks that support global spamming.

This is a must-read for anyone who wants to know how these results were achieved, the methods used, and the legal difficulties faced in dealing with the miscreants without overstepping the law or ethics.

It is amazing how closely this large scale investigation mirrored much of our own efforts in tracking Storm, and in composing the wiki at http://spamtrackers.eu which covers the same ground in terms of the spamming economy, spam brand identification and affiliate tracking.
