German Spam

May 18, 2005

For some reason my inbox has been getting bombarded with German spam the past couple of days.  Is it just me? 

Here’s what a bunch of the emails say:

.. damit Sie nicht als der erste Kanzler in die deutsche Geschichte eingehen, der Untertanen verboten hat, aus ihren Fenstern auf die Strasse zu gucken – selbst Nazis und Stalinisten haben niemals eine aehnliche Anordnung treffen lassen!

I hope I didn’t just post something obscene.  Just wondering if anyone else is getting anything like this…?

    According to a news report I read, this is the latest wave in spam: propaganda spam. Supposedly, these German messages are courtesy of the Sober.q virus, and they contain links that will take you to some right-wing Neo-Nazi German political news stories as well as website where your computer could end up infected.

    So what’s next? “Evangelism Spam”? Oh, I was kidding, but this guy took it seriously.
