Mother fucking spammers...
Great - someone seems to be Joe Jobbing with my main address. I've been getting a bunch of "Your mail can not be delivered" messages from mailing lists, etc, that I've never heard of.

Were the messages in German? I was getting that for the Neo-Nazi spam that was going around this past weekend.

They had a URL that went to a page in German, yeah.

No idea what it said since I don't read German and didn't bother Bablefishing it.

Yeah, that's probably the one -- the German NDP or National Democratic Party, who are to democrats as the National Socialists were to socialists.

They spammed pretty broadly this weekend, and bounces are still showing up even though the spam filters have learned about them.

It appears to be thanks to a varient of the SOBER virus, although in this case its sending out spam rather than more copies of itself.

It's definitely the newest Sober variant that sends this. Just be glad that you don't have addresses under .de/.at/.ch, it hit us really hard this week.

FWIW, here are a couple quick&dirty SA rules to find them.

Our main work address for the library was spammed that way recently. The IT dept said it was nothing to worry about until the head honcho boss got in on it. Then they fixed the problem, though I have no idea what they did...
