Several days ago I started getting a few spam emails with both subject and content in Chinese. Starting from just after midnight this morning this has turned into a torrent - more than 110 received in the last 11 hours.
Typical subject lines such as "老伙计 邀您紸冊嶺⑶⒏瀛38O提-嶴菛威尼斯人官网336468。C0M伽专員扣:2228347025嶺荭苞天天抢周周拿共资月月赚俸禄、入窾优惠2%电子优惠多多更专业".
That translates in Google as "Old man invited you to book Ling ⑶ ⒏ 瀛 38O mention 岙 菛 Venetian official website 336468. C0M Gala Commissioner deduction: 2228347025 Ridge Hong bud every day to grab the week to take a total of money on the month earned a salary, into the discount 2% of the electronic offer a lot more professional "
QN: Have paradise.net.nz spam filters been disabled or are otherwise inactive?
Surely this type of email should be easy to identify and filter out?
The bulk are coming from various qq.com addresses, but a few also from 126.com and 163.com addresses today. At this stage easy enough for me to divert to 'Junk' but concern is that mail other domains will start being used.
Have also been receiving 1 - 3 spam emails per day from Newfrog.com as well as more than usual other spam (usually only 1-4 per week, but 14 last week). The 'other spam' may be the worst as it comes from random email addresses and some of it contains viruses, etc
