Spamming via Google Calendar

Spams are now arriving as meeting invites sent through Google Calendar.

Spammers are now using Google Calendar, according to the SANS Internet Storm Center (ISC).

"Every once in a while I see a new spamming method. This one came from (Google Calendar)...as a meeting invite," writes Donald Smith of the ISC. "I deleted the e-mail, but due to my preferences in Exchange it appeared in my calendar anyways."

The text of the meeting invite was in French from someone at the International Clearing House West Africa-Benin, and promised $1.2 million in exchange for paying a $150 nonresident tax.

Spammers always have been early adopters.
