On two successive days last week, I received the following two SPAM emails.
I'm trying to figure out the point. As I (and countless infosec pros) have said before, most SPAM emails nowadays contain links to malware sites. The bad guys want you to click on the link and download their spyware to your PC, giving them access to your computer and, more importantly, the passwords to your sensitive accounts.
But these emails had no such links. So I can only guess they're simply trolling for "live" email addresses to file away or sell to someone else, who then can hammer them with more SPAM. But tactic that is so yesterday! Nonetheless, the lesson remains the same:
Don't reply. Just delete.
How about you all? Are you getting more or less SPAM these days?
