June 18, 2010Canadian Pharmacy Needs a Dose of Immodium
The Spamhaus Number One Spammer, Canadian Pharmacy (or affiliates), has been pouring out more poisonous junk recently than the BP oil well.
In the last few days, the social engineering side of the campaigns — the message Subject: lines and enticing bodies — had been directed to recipients who might fall for the "secret admirer" scam. Subject: lines were things like "Love Of My Life", and message bodies were along the lines of:
You Complete Me
open attach and read all ;)
The HTML file attachment for many was named "loveletter.html."
Then, overnight, they (or a different affiliate) supplemented their repertoire with some Angelina Jolie and other "Holywood" [sic] superstar orgy videos, with subject lines in all caps that include the word SCANDAL. "[C]lick attached link and see video now", the message urges.
This morning saw another group, titled "adultfriendfinder new messages", a message body indicating I have three messages from young 20-something women. Yeah.
I urge you not to go down the trail. It is very possible that affiliates are being paid for visits whose referrers are the domains hosting the z.html files. Rewarding those bastards will just keep it coming.Posted on June 18, 2010 at 10:10 AM
