There's a new spam going round that we started seeing last Friday. The subject line consists of a (seemingly) random string of characters composed of uppercase letters and numbers, and the body text contains two words: Hillo<number> followed by a string of numbers and lowercase letters (letters optional in the limited examples I've seen).
Example From: eldonxv4 [email@example.com]To: A name that's not mineSubject: G0XVB Hillo7 761
From: eldonxv4 [firstname.lastname@example.org]To: A name that's not mineSubject: G0XVB
Looks a little random but my bet is that it is either broken spamware or address harvesting. I think we can expect to see another spam run within the next couple of days. That's typically the way it worked in the past.
The following is the header information - pretends to be email@example.com. Has picture download now beta 2 Internet explorer 7. When clicked on upercase letters appear accross top of page.
