Brazil blocks port 25

In an attempt of diminishing the number of spams sent, Brazil Internet Committee has decided to completely shut the port 25.  It is an attempt to diminish Brazil’s ranking on the list of countries with the highest amount of spam sent. Currently Brazil is the 5th in this ranking.

The port will be completely shut in December of this year and replaced by the the port 587.
