Its carefully crafted faffle to get the email past your spam filter/guard or similiar.



many bulk/spam mail filters use rules that rank emails based on their content as to how likely they are to be spam, by carefully crafting the content to get a low score against the commonly used rules the email is more likely to end up in your inbox rather than filed under junk mail or deleted.

I have a question for you... Why the heck are you opening that crap? !dodge

You're going to catch something doing that, go blind, and get hair on the palms of your hands,
or so I've been told :D

Most of these messages are just attempts to sell you something, but if you are unlucky, your PC might just contract something really bad. I do not open anything with attachments, or anything with a source that is not familiar to me. The big problem, is that your friends can get infected and have their PC's turned into merciless zombie e-mail spammers, and if you open their mail, you get to be a zombie too. What a screwed up mess that can turn out to be.

I don't open it.. gmail shows the first sentence of all emails... so I always see this crap.. I just open a few now and then to gawk at this crap.. I know about the dangers.. but I use a mac iBook so I'm not too concerned.

If you think you're immune from virii because you're on a mac, you're wrong. True _most_ attacks are against win32 but macos attacks exist so don't be too comfortable.

what I don't get is why they even care to get these messages through to your inbox. This new crop of spam has absolutely no use. Those picture ones. That the content is a picture instead of text, and the sender/subject are always different. What could the use of these things possibly be? At least the old spam tried to sell you something, or give you a virus, or try to steal your money and such....but these are just gibberish and a picture of some bs stock thing....no links, story, nothing. What could the use of these things possibly be?

Gooch could be some other payload that got stripped off by your ISP's AV solution and you're not seeing the whole thing. The original message may have had an attachment that was infected with some sort of payload.

All sorts of reasons, the images and text and what not is just to try and fool the basian technology into letting the message pass.
