A spam story

When I returned from the Summer Conference, I put the photos up on the web. Then, I asked different people to take a look…

To my amazement, Richard gets an “access denied” message. So I ask him for his IP. Out of all IPs floating out there, I recognized his. Its not a number you memorize, its a number your remember. A few months ago, it was a major source of spam. Trust me, it was not fun. Richard’s computer was infected with the worst kind of virus and he didn’t even know it. The virus not only sent spam, it also forged the email addresses; hence other people were getting the attachments from Richard but supposedly from my email address… and then they were asking me whether I am infected!?

I mean come on, this coming from a lame PC user? But from Richard - an IOI alumni!? You’d expect the guy to be some sort of a computer genious… only to find out that he is a spammer!!

Shut up Oleg. Can you prove it's not your computer and it memorized my E-mail? (considering you already sent spam)
