    Other spam email subjects we’ve seen so far:

    • Be your own boss with Google
    • Earn cash using Google today
    • Google System that really works
    • Make a fortune online
    • Make thousands a month from home
    • Start your home business today
    • Use Google to earn extra cash

    As of this writing, the hyperlink found in the email body redirects to an advertising link which currently returns a redirect loop error in Firefox web browser.

    Another current event seen leveraged on by this wave of Waledac spam runs is the swine flu outbreak, as spammed messages bear subjects that seem related to a vaccine for swine flu.
