Spamming yourself

Still to be figured out – a potentially new spamming technique whereby the mail looks like it came from..you.

I am not going to speculate, as I’d have to go the conspiracy theory route, but if I did it would sound something like this: the numbers in the subject line are alien coordinates, which when the user opens up their email are broadcast via an unknown high frequency transmission through the insecure ports on your wireless hub (which is why authorities and the media are always blaming WiFi for everything).

We are all their operatives (unless you run WPA2 of course).

The From: header is easily forged. Always has been. How is this new?

JD,

It isn’t, but someone needed a headline today. Hence, the sarcasm (as if that is anything new around here).
