Received more than 1500 right-wing spam mails today (and counting) as well as more than 600 bounces so far. The same old pattern of spammers exploiting a virus and sending out their "message" abusing email addresses. Roul from Kapersky says it's Sober.Q this time.

Of course I still don't share the views of those idiots.

Must be a new virus in the wild again. I've received more than 8600 Virus mails during the past twelve hours. The number that really disturbs me is that more than 8000 of them are bounces created by less than 10 different mail servers - bounces that contain the virus itself as payload.

I vaguely recall Chuqui posting the worst offenders in his blog in the past, but I doubt it would help too much.

Hmm, just realized that some of the bouncers listed here previously didn't identify the virus but complained about non-existant users, so bouncing the full mail was acceptable - if still dumb. I've removed the list for now.

The German Bundestag has passed a law against spam yesterday following some other countries that had similar laws already. Where would I file my lawsuit against all the people promising to make me rich? Nigeria is everywhere these days. Yet another unenforceable law.

I've been quite surprised when I received the first spam mail that got my name correct in the subject line sometime last months, but now I've started to get virus mails with an attachment named Imagine how many people will be convinced the document is for/about them. Scary.
