Bonne Saint-Valentin's

Filed Under: SophosLabs, Spam

It's finally here, that day eagerly anticipated by spammers and malware authors around the world -- and they're hard at work trying to snag those last minute shoppers.

We have the expected Viagra spammers:

Viagra Spam gets rosy

Casino spammers:

Casino Love

and, of course, replica designer accessories spammers:

Love your replica watch

What do they all have in common, besides being about Valentine's day? They're all multilingual, and being blasted to inboxes world-wide. However, if you use Sophos anti-spam products, it's likely that you won't see most of them, as we block them proactively.
