ewv Posted March 18, 2004 Share Posted March 18, 2004 The parser consistently gives different results for a certain type of html formatting, depending on whether the spam is forwarded or copied into the window. 1 Forwarding spam including the 3d-mangled url <a href=3D"http://www.mega-health.net/cia/?sash"> results in resolving the link to to 22.214.171.124 with reporting addresses mail-abuse[at]nic.br and "Internal spamcop handling: (spambr)" (apparently spambr[at]admin.spamcop.net). 2. When the spam is copied into the window, the url is parsed as unresolvable. Subsequently copying the domain name alone into another window resolves it to the correct IP address but with only the reporting address mail-abuse[at]nic.br. This difference has a practical consequence because a lot of spam urls are 3d-mangled, and I often use the copy method when the delays in the alert notifications following the forwards are so long that I don't wait for them. The copy procedure is already more time-consuming without the additional manual url search. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
