Denial of service

[ #7708 ]
The uptime from our mail server:

3:23pm up 77 days, 22:13, 1 user, load average: 10.62, 14.17, 15.56

Ack! It seemed that one of our clients spammed a bunch of people including somebody at the Cuban Embassy. In the email was a link to a cgi-script we host which sends an email to the client. They submitted it 3500 times.

Running those messages through spamassassin and a virus checker didn't do the server much good :(
