A few months back, Tony Blair was caught spamming. The intent was to send email to his own supporters, but it just didn’t work out that way.
Now, spammers have seized the opportunity. Mention of Blair’s email account is being planted in emails to lure readers to a trojan spam attack. The claim in the email is that Blair’s account has been hacked, and if you click through you can see the contents of the account.
While I feel bad for whoever the victims wind up being, I’ve gotta say that using “a known spammer’s” name (one who just happens to be the leader of a country) to get folks to read a trojaned email is a pretty sneaky trick. And since I have no love loss for politicians, I just have to say “Blair, you had this one coming.”
