Yet More Fun With Spam

Another Actual Spam from my inbox:


What’s funny about this one? Check the subject line:

Re: %RNDUCCHAR[2-8], almost followed after

You know how the spammers have taken to throwing in bunches of random letters in their subject lines (“Generic Viagra Cheap xyzza”), to try and throw off your spam filter? It looks like this fellow doesn’t know how to use his spamming software, and he’s included the name of the function (%RNDUCCHAR[2-8]) that generates those random letters in the subject line, rather than the output from that function (between 2 and 8 random characters — “xyzza”, say).

Way to go, fella! I guess we now have an answer to the question “how dumb do you have to be to get into the spam business”…
