Just saw a new format of spam that is hitting our servers.
Instead of the email containing the contents of the actual spam text
or image, or a link to their own spam site, spammers are now putting in
just a link to a yahoo group message screen like:
This is the spammer’s attempt to bypass spam filters but the question
is how effective is this spam? Its more of an annoyance for mail
readers as they can just delete the email without even going to the site
to check what the spam content might be. Of course, there are those
who just keeps on clicking links without thinking.
I wonder if a particular page can be blocked so these users won’t be
able to visit those sites. We can’t block yahoo groups outright.
