Is it just me or has anyone else been getting more spam right after the Mydoom worm. I know it is probably just a coincidence especially being that i never open any attachments. :mad:

I would have to say I've received more spam in the last week or so than normal.

Why do you think it has something to do with the mydoor virus, or do you think it's just a coincidence? :confused:

Ditto. Guess the spammers felt inadequate by certain viri stealing their thunder.

I'm just waiting for a time in which spammers start to use viruses to spread their own messages. Seems a natural progression as far as junk marketing is concerned, given the blaitant disregard most spammers have for laws, protocols and general ethical standards already established in the field.

Oh i am sure they would just love that, but the risk of them getting caught goes up if they get connected to whatever they are selling.

Something is definately up now though. I still got a lot of spam today.
