rconner Posted April 19, 2009 Share Posted April 19, 2009 I've seen this trick before, so it isn't new, but thought it might be worth posting (tracking link). Spammer creates a link to his site that contains a lot of bogus fields in the <A> tag, all of which have long complicated URLs. Only one of these (the customary "HREF=") is any good. The spammer seems to be doing this to confuse investigators. This guy has been pestering me for awhile, his messages contain no text at all save for an anchor to his link (he's selling pharms). I'd laugh at his stupidity in expecting that I'd click on such a link, but then again I suppose that too many other recipients do exactly that. Interestingly, SpamCop found and reported to MSN on the good link, but was able to sidestep all the bad ones. So, hats off to the developers on this one. -- rick Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
