Election topics are spammers useful tool

Oct 21, 2008

According to New York Times spammers are seven times more likely to use Obama's name than McCain's in the bulk messages subject lines. This news hardly makes a splash. Phisher's task is to tempt the reader to the suggested links clicking. Surely they use the words most likely to attract attention. The above statistics refers to this September, hundred to one in October Palin's themed spam has beaten that of both mentioned candidates.
For ordinary users this fact may only mean adding extra spam filters. As they have never been perfect it is useful to scan your spam folder for false positives. However, some messages deserve your special attention.
The story is as follows.
A user scans his spam folder and finds a suspicious message confirming his registration with some dating site he had never been. He is about to deleting it when he notices that the indicated credit card numbers look too familiar. The account checking confirms the suspicion. The considerable sum wiped off.
However, it would have been a lot more painfully if he did not catch this message in the mailbox. The trick was that the hackers used his actual email account for some reason. After taking all the respective measures the guy even got a citation from FBI (!).
A basic spam analysis is a good idea.

for 3 hours straight I did this. It wasn't<a href="http://ttydefvzup.com"> gebibrish</a>, he could tell theat it was precise formation of words. First, has anyone experienced this and second, is there a way for me to understand what I experience overall while dreaming. I have by the way, had a sleep apnea test and went to counseling for a year for nightmares. They actually have become less terrorizing but I still am unable while dreaming to relax and try to fully experience what I see.Also, one of my most vivid dreams I had about 2 months ago, I actually did recognize someone and he looked like a thin but strong scraggly man with long matted hair and appeared to be somewhat older in age yet not elderly. I dreamed about him 2 different nights. The firt night he was trying to get to me to speak with me and I was terrified and ran. In my dream I was running through an old manufacturing plant that had big machinery. I managed to wake just at the point he had me cornered. The second night I dreamed about the same man. I was walking on a grassy path outdoors with a group of people. He was a few feet behind me. I took a deep breath and wanted to see who he was. I dropped back to be walking beside him. I asked him if he was Satan. He said very calmly and without any kind of threatening demeanor, that yes, he was. I asked him if I was going to be ok. He said yes, you are going to be fine. Right up to the point of your death. You're going to struggle a little there but otherwise you will be fine. I actually felt relief and had a sense of calmness for several days.I am a pretty calm and peaceful natured person on the outside but most people don't know how inside I typically feel unsettled and fearful. Just a state of unrest is the only way I can explain it. So this sense of calm was a dramatic difference to the way I normally feel. It was actually pretty wonderfulAny insight or advice would be greatly appreciated.
