Mysterious and Blank [Jun. 23rd, 2005|04:27 pm]
We have a spam filter here at work, which works really well. It quarantines the spam, so you can check it from time to time and rescue any legitimate messages it might have caught (pretty rare, but it happens). Sometimes I can't help but look at the spam.

Today I discovered a completely new flavor of spam: totally blank.

No subject, no contents, nothing. It's a revolution in subliminal advertising!

I'm so intrigued by its enigmatic blankess, I'm almost tempted to keep it.

Do they have usernames? I've seen ones that don't even have a sender. No sender, no subject, no content.

It's like sui generis spam.

Oh I get a lot of those. I think they might actually be some sort of weird failed virus. It's allegedly 0 bytes, but there might be some wacky Microsoft Outlook shortcut buffer overflow hoohaa. Or maybe it's just blank. Sometimes a cigar...
