Phishing d’Agosto

(cross-post, Experiment, Three)

Di phishing ne ho visto tanto, ci lavoro, per giunta, e di mail che cestino di default senza nemmeno leggerle ne ricevo veramente tante. Eppure, una mail di phishing come questa non l’avevo mai vista :-): mi si propone una collaborazione su un progetto di ricerca per… la scoperta di nuove creature, forse, di origine paranormale!!!

In pratica, il nostro ingegnere aerospaziale, un po’ per caso, ha fotografato (con il suo telefonino) delle creature normalmente “invisibili” e ora vuole che qualcuno lo aiuti a studiarle.

Questo va al di la’ di ogni immaginazione, sono tentato di rispondergli (sapendo che poi la mia casella verra’ inondata di spam) solo per curiosita’: dopo una mail del genere, cos’altro ti pou’ arrivare? :-))))

ps: ho lasciato il link alla sua pagina web, non sembra “pericoloso”


First of all I must apologize for sending this email to you. My name is Mr. Abdul Rahman and I am an Aircraft Engineer. I got your email from the internet and I am truly sorry if my email is bothering you. I have been trying to find a scientist that can help me in my research to the creatures that I have discovered. Actually I don’t know who to approach to help me with this discovery. I believe may be the biologist, physicist or any scientist may be able to help. Scientists who are interested in the discovery of new creatures. The images of the creatures I took cannot be a Pareidolia because of different background colour and shape. Pareidolia only supported if either the colour or shape of the background is almost the same as the mysterious image i.e images in cloud or trees.

I am suggesting scientists to carry out a research to invent a proper camera which can capture the image of these unseen creatures. I don’t believe in fairy tales and I only believe in real creatures, otherwise I would have sought help from ghost hunters or paranormal mediums. No, I am more interested to find fact, thus the only people who I believe can help me are the scientists.

My hand phone ability to capture these paranormal images which I have discovered accidentally is a crude way of carrying out the task. Only with a properly designed camera can the images be taken clearly.

As for the origin of these creatures, I have no idea. I don’t know what they are made of. My theory is that these creatures may have the ability to control humans mind causing hysteria, possession, suicide and mass killing and so on. Most scientist believe these behaviors were caused by chemical reaction in the brain. But then  something must have triggered it. Due to stress? It could be true, but how come most very stressed people are not affected with possession and hysteria? I need scientist to help me with the research and all I know is that these creatures are what people have identified as ghosts or demons.

I feel that scientists should look into these creatures more seriously as their existence can be seen by a camera, just like germs can be seen with a microscope. What if one day these creatures manage to possess a million humans at a same time? Do not think this is a hoax, it is not. I know it sounds silly but please don’t ignore me. I have tried contacting every universities but none has responded positively. Some even insulted me and accusing me of spamming. I am not advertising or selling a product here, I am seeking help to find a scientist who is willing to assist me. Please read my website and what I am telling is all true and I need scientist to verify it. I even offer US$10,000 to anyone who can proof the pictures I took are fake.

I am not trying to promote a religion here. What I believe is, good Christians, Jews and Muslims will go to heaven. So this is nothing about religions here which I want to point out. I am just trying to share important information about a species of creatures that cannot be seen by human eyes which most scientists believe do not exist. Hopefully we all can find the truth about these creatures. Below is the website. Thank you for willing to read my email.

Best Regards

Google Apps Security Services

Allora, vediamo se ho capito quello che ho letto qui.

Il nuovo pacchetto Security di Google Apps offre delle funzionalita’ che aumenteranno la sicurezza di applicativi email quali “Microsoft Exchange Server, Lotus Domino, Postfix, Sendmail, Macintosh OS X Server, Novell Groupwise”. Il pacchetto, quindi, e’ orientato ad un utilizzo aziendale, cioe’ dove tali server sono in genere installati.

Le tariffe sono competitive e i servizi probabilmente validi (come al solito, quando si parla di Google):

* message filtering: anti-spam, anti-virus, anti-phishing, and malware protection for inbound messages – $3/user/year
* message security: inbound and outbound mail filtering, email encryption, content policy management – $12/user/year
* message discovery: the same as above plus one-year message archiving, audit reports – $25/user/year

Il vero problema, pero’, emerge quando ci chiediamo come funzioni questo sistema:

You change the MX records to point your mail traffic to Google’s data centers and all the bad traffic will be stopped before reaching your mail server.

A quanto pare, tutta la posta dell’azienda deve passare attraverso i server di Google! Fra le righe, infine, leggiamo che

Google processes email in RAM and doesn’t write the valid messages to disk

segno che qualche nota stonata e’ emersa anche da quelle parti.

Insomma, da un punto di vista della privacy aziendale non mi sembra accettabile consegnare nelle mani di un soggetto esterno tutta la propria corrispondenza, nella speranza che rispetti il suo motto e “non sia cattivo”!
