Spammers exploit anti-spam trap 1

“Some spammers are getting their messages through using techniques designed to spot and stop them.

A survey shows that spammers are the biggest users of a technique designed to find out if e-mail comes from the net address it says it does.

The system was developed to stop mail senders faking the address in e-mail messages to give them an aura of authenticity and fool spam filters.

However, the system is proving good at stopping spoofing and phishing attacks.”
