uwecboi21 Posted May 9, 2007 Share Posted May 9, 2007 I've been reporting some of the pharmacy emails that come in with links to the domain in the title. Each link is followed by a long query string. First, I'm surprised this domain doesn't show up more often here. In fact, I can not find a reference to this domain anywhere on the internet. It looks to be a gateway of some kind but I don't have the experience or expertise to know for sure. The question is, does the query string identify the email of the recipient for the spammer? Is it possible that the long query string is for the spammers benefit to clean his list? That would explain why this spammer does not seem to be widely reported if he removes all people who report after the first time. I own a domain and my catch-all receives literally hundreds of these spams a day. Apparently someone decided they could 'make up' a list of emails on a domain with a catch-all and sell it spammers like this. I'm concerned that I am helping this spammer clean their list by reporting. Since the query string is very, very long and appears to be unique in each email (though I have not verified that as it is a very, very long sequence), I wondered if maybe this spammer found a way to cull out reporters without actually receiving their email addresses. After all, no query string is needed at all to be redirected from pariont.com to the spam site. Any thoughts? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
