Spaces Live — Microsoft’s flagship social networking site (ab)used

As I type a large spam campaign is abusing spaces.live.com Microsoft’s flagship social networking site.

A typical message using spaces.live.com:

The obfuscated part of the domain is a random username.

If you were to click on the site you would see a page similar to this:

When you follow that link you will get to a generic RX site:

I have bravely clicked on the links so you don’t have to and we would recommend that you take the spam pledge and never click on links in spam.
