Encoded Spam

 [1/2] from: al::bri::xtra::co::nz at: 28-Sep-2002 23:49

If anyone wants to see this encoded spam I've got, email me directly at [Al--Bri--xtra--co--nz] and I'll send you a copy as an attachment. Here's what part of it looks like as plain text: ------=_NextPart_000_00D4_38A53D6B.E4607E15 Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1" Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64 PT09PT09PT09PT09PT09PT09PT09PT09PT09PT09PT09PT09PT09PT0NCklu dmVzdG1lbnQgaW4gdGVjaG5vbG9neSB0aGF0IHdpbGwgbWFrZSB5b3UgbW9u ZXkuDQo9PT09PT09PT09PT09PT09PT09PT09PT09PT09PT09PT09PT09PT09 Andrew Martin ICQ: 26227169

Hi Andrew, That's just base64 encoded email as opposed to encrypted email. Your email client readily decodes this, and one also has to decode it prior to examing it with one's various filters. I would be interested in seeing some email that has a virus. I've deleted all those sent to me, and now I'm interested in seeing what has to be done to detect them. If you've got any, can you send them to rebol @ compkarori dot com and not to my usual email in case it gets through unnoticed! --Graham
