    While spammed messages that lead to Canadian pharma sites are not new, there are notable things in this particular spam run. For one, it employed random messages in the email content to avoid spam filters. The spammers also put “Re:” in the subject to make it appear as though it was a reply of sorts. In addition, the FROM and TO fields bear the same email address. It particularly used dictionary form of spam attack where spammers randomly send spammed messages to a generated list of email addresses. Upon further analysis, the domains used were just recently registered.

    As usual, users are advised not to open emails that spamvertise sexual enhancement pills. Trend Micro users are secure from this spam attack with the Smart Protection Network. Non-Trend Micro products users can stay protected from this by using free tools like eMail ID.
