New Spam Outbreak hits TMC

Recently, one of TMC's e-mail accounts has been getting flooded with thousands of spam messages which a coworker thought were from Russia. Here is a sample:

      <td width="360" height="145" bgcolor="#FFEFAE"><p align="center"><font color="#FF3300" size="5" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">clicktema</font></p>

      <p align="center"><a href="standartclicklink"><font size="4" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">Перейти на сайт </font></a></p></td>




I've been trying to see if this is an isolated incident or not - I have heard a report of a virus affecting Hotmail users but so far Microsoft has not immediately responded to my request for more information. Besides, the sample email above is not a Viagra message - at least I think it isn't.

Moreover, it seems this message could be coming from Vietnam based on the .VN top-level domain.

If you have been seeing any odd spam activity as of late please let me know so I can report on it.
