Celebrity nudity remains chief spamming hook

The only Hollywood A-listers in Downtime’s recalcitrant memory to produce twins, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, both feature on another Top 10 list, that of Secure Computing’s web threats report.

 

A spam message with “Angelina Jolie without clothes on”  was August’s coy top spam message, the security company reported. Husband Brad came in at nine.

 

Incredibly, Barack Obama beat Paris Hilton, and Osama bin Laden was as popular as Brad in a spammer’s headline. At least it shows that spammers keep up with the news, but Downtime reckons that Naked Britney Sex will still pull the crowds.
