Hov, du har sendt Jubii en virus !!! [Jan. 30th, 2004|09:30 am]
Brad Fitzpatrick
Filtering the MyDoom virus out of my inbox is one thing. Filtering all these "You sent a virus!" messages from stupid virus gateways that don't know the From headers are forged.... well, that pisses me of. Can't reliably write rules to block them because there are hunreds of 'em.

I woke up to 247 new uncaught spams, most of which were from "Virus-Admin@stupidsite.net" and such.

But at least ones in other languages amuse me.

Danish looks like a mix of German and English, but I see "har" (hab, have) doesn't push the verb (sendt) to the end like German.

Of course, what Danish do I know? Maybe "har" means "whore" and it's like:

Hey, you whore sent Jubii a virus!

Yes, all virus notification mails suck.

The message from Jubii means:

"Hey, you've sent a virus to Jubii"

Yeah, I was able to read it. I was just wondering the relation between all the languages, noting their similarities and differences.

These SpamAssassin rules have proved useful for me so far. Not perfect, but cuts it down to manageable levels.

I was tempted to write an (in)polite auto-bouncer for those stupid virus-notifications, but I think that would just be contributing to the problem...
What bugs me is that these virus scanner manufacturers know that the FROM field is bogus (from their advisories on their webpages), yet their scanners send out that stupid notifications anyways... :(
