German Spam everywhere...

I am getting hammered with German spam. Not in my Gmail, but in my account. Postini, our Spam and Virus tool has been outstanding, but these are making it past it. I just read this on Steve Rubel’s blog...

Many bloggers are saying they are getting bombed with right-wing German spam today. I am one of them. Phillip Lenssen sums it up...

My Gmail account is being swamped by hundreds of German spam mails today – literally hundreds of them, un-filtered in my inbox. Usually, Google is good at filtering out spam, but not this time. The mails cover different topics in German and English, linking to public (mostly non-spam, “regular”) articles. Implicitly, they all express right-wing views. Some more, some less radical. I suspect I’m by far not the only one getting these mails.

The press, so far, has been fairly quiet on this issue. eWeek, however, is reporting that there is a spam attack underway, but does not dig into the potential blog aspects of it.

Are you getting hammered as well? Do you have anymore info to share?
