Early contributors to the GEAS Superstruct initiative have reported an upsurge in 'grief' attacks.""My blog was flagged as a Spam Field and walled off within minutes of my registering""""That's all I did, but it's really having an impact on my cloud scaping!"" said one source. Other people have had similar experiences, and some suspect a grief plague.  Grief plagues are viral bots that infiltrate a cloud service and use its resources to trigger various unsolicited and unwelcome behaviour on unwitting users. Usually this takes the form of tailored spam, but the algorithms employed have been growing in sophistication and malice.""We have had some complaints"" said a spokeswoman for Superstruct. ""but these were the sort of start-up problems to be expected of an undertaking this size. Our technicians are fixing the problems as fast as they can, and there are currently no indications that we have unleashed any 'grief plague' on our members."" ""Believe me, we know the risks of cyber-hacks and how to deal with them. We have taken every precaution to ensure this doesn't happen!""Have you been affected by grief attacks since registering with Superstruct?
