Spa`mm`ers a`r`e st`u`pi`d

Sheesh. Just when you thought spammers couldn’t get any more ridiculous, they’re finding hilariously amusing and totally ugly ways to attempt to counteract spam filters.

Today, for instance, I received a spam with the wonderfully munged subject line of “brin¨g. in m·or­e – busi-ºñèss less”.

The kicker? Even with all of this spammer’s attempts to avoid being filtered, the copy of SpamAssassin running on zone38 identified it for what it was, thanks to the number of dollar signs and (un-obfuscated) spam-related phrases contained within.
