ref (append), re: religious oriented message subject lines Over the last couple of days, I've notices a new class of SPAM targeting -- this time attempting to get religious oriented victims to open the malicious email. Some selected email subject lines seen already are listed below. In watching & tracking SPAM over the last two years or so, I believe this is the first time I've seen a religious oriented targeting campaign. I would suspect that the same perpetrator is responsible for all the items cited below -- all seemingly part of the same campaign.
