Spam on Spaces
         


<p>So how bad is Microsoft's <span class="domain">spaces.live.com</span> spam problem?</p>

<p>Recently, I've been seeing heavy use of <span class="domain">spaces.live.com</span> URLs as spam gateway pages, promoting everything from pills to fake watches, from Russian brides to &mdash; embarrassingly for Microsoft, whose own products are among those offered &mdash; pirated software. The use of these domains gives spam messages a kind of limited 'respectability'. Instead of directly listing the Chinese-hosted sites that sell their products, easily identifiable by spam filters, they can trade on the name of the corporate giant to get the message through.</p>
