Farelf Posted July 15, 2008 Share Posted July 15, 2008 Sheesh - seems half of my morning spam either has an infector attachment (according to VIRUSTOTAL) or a URL to an exploit site (according to LinkScanner Online). The spam with exploit links quite closely mimic their non-exploitive cousins in all regards, the link, the body and the (mismatched) "provocative" title. Seems there's quite a recruiting drive going on, using some of the lists I must be on. It's like a time warp. Can't begin to imagine how much of this stuff must be just "bouncing off the windshield", sight unseen. For the curious, this brief video on the dissection of a bot (no gore, ichor or purulence, I promise) - Botnet Source Code for Overachievers (igotspam.com) (Note McAfee SiteAdvisor has a red flag on igotspam.com for links to red sites. I don't see any other complaints and no problems were noticed with the specific link above. Just don't blindly trust any external links, on igotspam or anywhere else.)
