Spam from Nathan
Frank Paolino    


I dug this Spam from Nathan via DominoFiles out of my JunkMail folder:
Nathan Freeman
Nathan Freeman

GROUP Frameworks VP R&D, an expert in XPages application development with more than 18 years of Lotus expertise.


Convert your Apps to XPages
with new Transformer Technology




This spam is from DominoFiles, the company Nathan and others allege is a sister company of mine, but which is false (but fact checking is not a necessary part of flaming someone, as I have found out). Nathan decries my (nonexistent) relationship with them, yet uses them to promote his new product with their spam.

As I said in Carl's blog, email is dead as a promotional tool. But Nathan hasn't found that out yet and still uses it to promote what looks like an interesting product.

Irony? Nathan, you are the master!

(and Nathan, I won't disable comments as you did, so you can put a link to your new product and help your own SEO).

Have you been targeted by Fraud emails?
Thu, Dec 18th 2014 8:25a   Frank Paolino
Lately, we have seen an uptick of fraudulent emails. The fraudulent emails are only sent to one or two people in highly targeted attacks. First they locate the names of high level executives, Then "spoofed" message are sent allegedly from these executives to people empowered to disburse money They hope the recipient will act quickly to please the executive and send money before realizing it is a spoofed message. Many of the messages "pretend" to be internal, but that are really [read] Keywords: email

Poodle + Domino SSL = Mail Problems
Wed, Oct 22nd 2014 2:45p   Frank Paolino
If you use Domino today, you effectively cannot use SSL for email (SMTP) until the promised IBM fix is available. Here is why: The fix vendors applied that patched the POODLE vulnerability broke communications with Domino servers that use SSL. These patched servers will start a secure (SSL) SMTP session but will not fall back to plain text. This means messages queued up in mail.box for sending outbound, or mail queued up at the sender that will not be received by you. The best n [read] Keywords: connections domino ibm email smtp

IBM and Apple focus on the Enterprise
Wed, Jul 16th 2014 10:25a   Frank Paolino
Apple is working with IBM to push into the enterprise space. Apple really has mainly focused on the consumer market, but products like IBM Traveler have made BYOD a reality. Now, with IBM, Apple is going to focus on large enterprises. Tim Cook gets a corporate partner with a great enterprise player to promote Apple as enterprise ready. Ginny Rometti mentioned security, which is an overwhelming concern with BYOD. If Apple and IBM make new offerings that satisy I [read] Keywords: ibm traveler apple application blackberry enterprise security

CryptorBit Virus
Mon, May 5th 2014 1:25p   Frank Paolino
There is a new and improved version of CryptoLocker. Version 1.0 made the makers of this ransomware a lot of money, and this version 2.0 is, I predict, just one of many new "feature enhanced" releases. Judging by the Bitcoin activity, there are a lot of "willing" victims out there paying to get their files back. BleepingComputer is doing a great job documenting this, so I will point you there for good advice and a possible free fix made by Nathan Scott called the DecrypterFixe [read] Keywords: virus

Time-lapse of Product Showcase Taken from my GoPro Camera
Tue, Feb 4th 2014 9:22a   Frank Paolino
I wanted to have a little fun at #IBMConnect so I put a GoPro camera over our booth on the Product Showcase and snapped pictures of all of our visitors over 4 days. The Product Showcase was certainly "energized", so I choose suitable music in the "William Tell Overture". [read] Keywords:

Refrigerators Now Send Spam as Well as Keeping it Cold
Mon, Jan 20th 2014 2:02p   Frank Paolino
Refrigerators now do more than keep spam, that tasty treat, cold, they also send spam, the electronic email version. That is the story of a compromised refrigerator that sends cold "spam" to unsuspecting users via it's internet connection. Viruses makers will try to add anything to their botnets, and the latest attack on "refrigerators" does not surprise me at all. The target of this attack was a refrigerator model running a flavor of Linux that had not been hardened or pr [read] Keywords: email linux virus

Increase in Virus Activity
Thu, Jan 9th 2014 2:02p   Frank Paolino
The increase in recent Virus activity has been noticeable, and the sophisticated techniques the virus makers use to evade detection make the job of stopping them that much more challenging. Many times, a new message appears and I ask "Is this some new attempt to get me to infect my machine"? Many of my customers ask me the same question, so I put a live stream of recently caught viruses subjects and attachment names on our website. (Obviously, I did not put the viruses, just their names [read] Keywords: virus

Notice to Appear in Court
Thu, Jan 2nd 2014 1:42p   Frank Paolino
Yes, the title of the blog appears scary and that is what the senders of the email want, to scare you into opening the message and reading the body, then launching the phony "notice". Here is a sample of a phony notice that appears to come from JonesDay. Here are the Law firms that were spoofed in these virus outbreaks, and a sampling of the from addresses that were used. To be perfectly clear, these messages are spoofing the law firms, trying to get the rec [read] Keywords: email office virus

Blocking EXE attachments is working great!
Fri, Dec 13th 2013 1:42p   Frank Paolino
We have advised customers of SpamSentinel for the last month to block EXE attachments, even (especially!) inside zip files. I have been monitoring the results on one of our servers, and they are spectacular in catching new virus outbreaks before their "signatures" are recorded. These are "zero hour" zero hour viruses, fresh off the computers of the virus makers. Here is a screenshot showing the recent patterns, piggybacking on popular email types, like airline ticket confirma [read] Keywords: email virus
