Suresh, thanks for your interest. I see you've had a lot of experience in fighting spam, so you must have known this. Yes, I know this spamming technique has been around for a while. But it's surprising to see that the majority of the ISPs that we studied are still vulnerable to this attack. That probably indicates that it is not as widely known as we would expect. So I thought it would be beneficial to raise the awareness of the problem.
In terms of more results, the paper is the most detailed document we have. Otherwise, if you interested in the data that we collected (which ISPs or IP ranges are vulnerable to this attack). We can chat offline.

>> Sorry for bringing this old topic back. But we have made some academic effort investigating the spamming behaviors using assymetric routing (we named it "triangualr spamming"). This work appeared in this year's IEEE Security & Privacy conference. You can take a look at it if you are interested (and feedbacks are welcome):
