  • About Us

    After Ron Paul, spam writers are now campaigning for Hilary Clinton. The spammed emails inform readers of the presidentiable’s visit to the state of Virginia, and entice users to download a video of the event.

    However, clicking on the link shows no video, but rather downloads a malware possessing the capability to turn a system into a lean mean spam-spewing machine, which, ironically, is just the perfect tool to gain popularity among the voting population — though obviously in bad tastes. Reaching out to people is a spammer’s high priority as well.

    As the election heats up, so does spam.
