Email reply-all cat-nado drenches Cisco inboxes with pics, memes

Trend Micro

Several years ago, Trend Micro managed to sent a notification of scheduled maintenance to Interscan Messaging Security to all their customers in the Asia Pacific region by putting all the email addresses in the To field. This was just before the Easter holiday, so I had a lot of messages along the lines of "Trend are idiots, Happy Easter" from people hitting reply all from all across Asia.

Ironic that a product designed to stop spam caused such a massive volume of mail landing in my mailbox.
