For those who don't believe SPAMmers use automated attacks...

  1. ....Here is an alert from my mailserver. I've redacted my domain to
    "amachine.my.domain.au", but aren't the user names interesting???

    Needless to say, they don't exist.

    I must get around to setting up an SMTP proxy to help reduce this crud!

    Their called BotNets

    A bunch of PC's infected with a Virus under control of the Scammer.
    Their also called PC Zombies.

    How many PC's are under control of a Scammer ?, nobody really knows
    but it would be more than 100,000 and possibly as high as 200,000
    at any one time.

    I reckon, the biggest cause is all those New PC's with a Norton 3 month
    free trial. After they expire people think they still covered 1-3 years
    later. They would be better off without these trials Installed, at least
    they would know they are not covered at all.
