slb Posted October 22, 2004 Share Posted October 22, 2004 Hello all, If you look at this spam body extract you will see a lot of useless Anchor html tags : Content-Description: arduous addle0.dew <html>Hello,<BR><br> We sent you an email a while ago, because you now qualify for a new mortgage.<BR> You could get $300,000 for as little as $600 a month!<BR> Ba<A href="http://www.daybreak.org"></A>d cr<A href="http://www.formosa.org"></A>edit is no problem, you can pull cash out or refinance.<BR><BR> Please click on this link for fr<A href="http://www.bookshelf.org"></A>ee consulta<A href="http://www.agribusiness.org"></A>tion by a mortgage broker:<BR> <a href="http://www.riterates.net/?id=m15">Start Saving Here</a> <BR><BR> Best Regards,<BR> Corina Moody <P align=left><FONT face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size=1>For em<A href="http://www.fedders.org"></A>ail re<A href="http://www.bole.org"></A>mov<A href="http://www.baptistery.org"></A>a<A href="http://www.exotica.org"></A>l, g<A href="http://www.flowery.org"></A>o <A href="http://www.riterates.net/book.php">here.</A></FONT></P> That seems clearly targetted against spamcop parser, since the MUA won't show the useless links to the recipient except the "good" one (here www.riterates.net), but SPAMCOP parser is fooled and refuse to report on the motive that there are "Too many links". Obviously a link with no text shouldn't be counted since it will not be displayed to the email recipient. So, could you spamcop guys do a slight modification to your parser and ignore non human viewable readable links ? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
