A Washington-based law firm has sued IBM, claiming that the vendor is responsible for a November 2005 attack on its email server. Butera & Andrews said an analysis of computer logs showed "over 42,000" attempts by IBM-controlled machines to attack its systems. The firm is seeking to force IBM to pay damages and reimburse the US$61,000 it spent investigating the matter. IBM has asked that the suit be dismissed, saying there are "no facts" showing that any of its employees were involved in the attacks.
