hok Posted February 25, 2007 Share Posted February 25, 2007 I do not filter incoming e-mail for spam but have been reporting spam via SpamCop for years. I have seen a surge of spamvertised URL, drug(s) and stock symbol in an image inline with HTML e-mail to evade SpamCop parsing for spamvertised URL as well as Bayesian analysis that scores individual e-mail for certain words to identify spam for filtering. I further noted another way to evade SpamCop parsing for spamvertised URL that is "replace "*" with "." or remove space in spamvertised URL, for example, http://www.22rx*com (Important! Replace "*" with ".") or http://www.22rx. com (Important! remove blank space). At first, I manually reported those spamvertised URL and noted most reported spamvertised URL got their web site shut down within few days. However, as this type of spam by image or mangled URL surge, I no longer can manually handle them. Any suggestion to have those web sites by spamvertised URL shut down at least semi-automatically like just reporting to SpamCop? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
