Post Script: Reader Zzamboni points out the "I love you" worm from 2000 which I completely forgot about. Does anyone remember those out of the blue emails flooding your inbox? Luckily I did not click in 2000. The 2011 version was just a harmless attachment free scramble of nonsense. I think it was about debt consolidation.
I've edited this post title from A new style of spam to A vintage style of spam. By the way Zzamboni has a cool site too.
