Stock Spam

I've written about a lot of problems related to dlls and spam spewing out of my servers. Maybe this was the source:

This piece of malware is spewing out all that stock spam you've possibly been seeing lately with some pretty advanced tactics.

This software is making some use of dlls...a major annoyance if you read my previous posts.
