    New spammer URL trick?

    Can you even click on the URL when it's displayed as the To: address? I guess that might depend on how/with what you are viewing the e-mail with. And I would add that you would have to be really dumb to click on a link in a To: field, right.

    Google redirect parsing

    Sure, there are different ways of looking at it, no need to hash it out again. But alas, nothing is being done. I'd like to hear an official SpamCop position on it, because the parser is still only finding Google: http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z929960465zce...001edd2052b140z

    Google redirect parsing

    I parsed it a few times to see if it would pick up the correct URL. Most of the time it found Google, at least once it didn't parse, spits the url back at you with no host resolve or any info about the url. I agree, but that falls outside of what SpamCop does. Getting Google to change their policies or the way their sites function is not what this service is about. For the purposes of the parser, it needs to be able to find the correct url for it to be effective. Pursuing Google to get them to change should be a separate campaign outside of reporting spam and spamertized websites.

    Google redirect parsing

    Here's a new one that the parser does not pick up the correct url. http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z927653881z47...3ed4e28ee5a36az [[Moderator note: this and the three replies, immediately below, have been moved here from another post. PM sent to all involved to let them know.]]

    Time to stop chasing spamvertized URLs

    Just a quick follow up on this. I had an ebay phishing scam e-mail mis-parse today. The first time it parsed it did not find the correct website, only came up with ebay urls. I hit reload on my browser and it parsed correctly the second time. Maybe the deputies should take a closer look at the parser.

    Parser: couldn't parse head

    Even with the dashes in red it still took me a few times over to see it.

    Time to stop chasing spamvertized URLs

    Looks to me like it is parsing corectly today. I took the header from a phishing scam I just got and pasted the body from one of your examples above and got the following parse: http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z909108980z80...181ab628eae9c4z I didn't submit it of course.

    Parser: couldn't parse head

    Ok, just wanted to make sure it wasn't some new trick or something. Thanks.

    FAQ Entry: The Link Analysis Process

    Just to add my 2 cents, the failure on the parsers part to resolve urls is of concern to me too, as I have said before in other posts about this subject. So there are others here that feel getting the websites reported is important.
  11. Parser says: error: couldn't parse head Message body parser requires full, accurate copy of message I know I've copied the full headers, can someone take a look at it, I don't read mime headers very well. Tracking url My guess is that the spammer intentionally mis-formatted it, but I can't tell.

    tricking with google

    edit: I think this is another example of the parser missing the url google is redirecting even though it is in plain sight. Tracking url Moderator edit: Merged this new post into an existing Topic/Discussion. PM sent.

    Filtering webmail folders

    I would offer help if I had any experience in using SpamCop webmail. Since I don't, someone that does will have to chime in here. I'm just posting so you don't think you are being ignored. Any of you experts have any advise?

    domain theft by spammers

    That is quite interesting. If I was to venture a guess, it looks to me like a spammer has harvested Larry's personal information and used it for domain registration. Quite ingenious. Makes the registration info apear "more" correct. Doesn't fool us though.
