Whats A Cid:
Posted 23 July 2007 - 05:17 AM
the spam email used html and had an image in it, so i tried to see if i could trace the server it was on using the source code, the images src started with cid: and finished mail.mud.yahoo.com, however when i pasted it into a browser i got an error message saying i need an attachment to see a cid:
anybody know what a cid is and why i can't open the image in a browser
also if spammers are so smart why dont they get proper jobs, the % of spam emails which get responded to must be so small they would have to do a huge amount of work to make any money, i recently got a dating agency spam message in highrankings private messages, the time it must have taken to open account, then send the messages without message box becoming full etc etc, add to that the person doing it was probably a worker bee and not even the main spammer, how on earth can you make money like that, bunch of idiots

As far as why spammers do it, the pros do it because it's a no-cost form of advertising for them. And it's certainly not because they're smarter than the average bear. The good ones don't even send the actual mail from their own computers, or in a way that can be easily traced back to them. They make use of users PC's via an email virus or run scripts that identify servers out there with an open relay or domains that have uploaded a unsecure mailing script. The best spammers actually have lists of hundreds of servers that they've managed to crack into because the server admin either doesn't know what they're doing on the security front and/or simply aren't paying attention.
The only way you can kill those off is to understand how email headers work and report them to the ISP or hosting company. But even if you do they'll have another 100+ ways to still send you spam because there are lots of compromised PC's and servers out there.

references to messages and the body parts of messages. For example,
within a single multipart message, one HTML body part might include
embedded references to other parts of the same message.

I think its quite an old trick. It's one of the easiest spam to filter, as long as you only send yourself email from a fixed number of addresses

seems to be very common judging by some of the domains I've managed
