Spam going to my Submit@spamcop address

Recommended Posts

The e-mail address where I submit spam for subsequent processing is being spammed directly. Example with munged address below.

I have never had a virus and I'm up to date with Sophos.

Because I did not foreward these to spamcop I can't actually finish reporting.

Any Ideas how to report these



SpamCop encountered errors while saving spam for processing:

Message forwarded in html wrapper.

When forwarding spam, use a MIME attachment or text-type message with

the spam enclosed. Do not send spam in HTML format. Sometimes this

error is caused by using a "resend" feature to forward spam.

HTML spam should be sent in text (source code) format.

The email which triggered this auto-response had the following headers:

If I understand your complaint, I'd say you need to drop a note to service <at> admin.spamcop.net (though noting that Ellen has started dropping notes that perhaps she now has access to some user account data ... deputies <at> admin.spamcop.net ..???) Provide enough data to prove that it really use, and basically point out that your submit address has bben compromised. Of course, the next question deals with how this was done .... other than pointing out that there are many more bad things out there beyond viruii, and yet again, pointing out that anti-virus software is generally reactionary .. the database only getting update after the virus is out there, been seen/submitted, analyzed, and data generated to identify / fix the thing ....
