Last week, I wrote about eTrade spam hitting inboxes. Today, we’re seeing the follow up from that: Bank of America spam.
This looks identical to the previous run with one difference: it’s spoofing Bank of America. Like the previous spam campaign, the message body contains only a link to a http://goo.gl redirector and the subject line contains all of the information.
Just like before, the spammer is using multiple bots. They’ve done a good job at evading Google’s controls and they are even sending some of the spam from Gmail’s outbound IPs. To put it one way, as my co-worker did, they’re abusing Google like a rented mule.
Most likely, it’s the same people doing it.
