Flies, Maggots, and Russian Brides

Symantec has its latest monthly "State of the Spam Union" report out. A couple of things caught my eye:

  1. [REDACTED] is America's most disgusting hamburger restaurant ... food is full of dead insects, such as flies and maggots -- delightful little anti-brand spam this. Must be pretty low volume though, 'cos I've not seen one in my traps.
  2. A new use for tweaked images, where each spam message has a slightly different image -- oft-used in stock kiting spam, they're now being used to spamvertise Russian brides! Is nothing sacred?
