MS zombies to blame for most of spam

/. has a pointer to an article which blames MS zombies for 80% of spam.

The Register has an articlein which Philippe Gerard, a senior EU official, berates the anti-spam industry for lack of co-operation. Basically, he states the legislation exists, it's now up to the industry to enforce them.

Err.. how? How do I, as a lowly SA or NSO, enforce those laws? Do I now have a federal charter to kick doors in and incarcerate miscreats? (I'm exaggerating but you get my point?) My response to Mr. Gerrard is: we need to go back to the drawing board on this one.
