If you've "received spam from greenhead.com"...
... please be advised that greenhead.com has often been the victim of a
" attack: some spam
company is sending out spam and illegally using greenhead.com in the return address. If you
check the headers carefully (or show them to your local mail guru), you'll see
that the spam actually came from someplace else. If a web site is advertised
in the body of the message, it isn't greenhead.com.
A “Joe Job” is typically defined as “a spam run forged to
appear as though it came from an innocent party, who is then generally flooded by the
bounces.” In other words, some spammer gets the domain name (and typically IP address)
of an innocent third party’s website and then sends spam to thousands or millions
of people, disguising the message so that it looks like it came from the third party.
As a result, the recipient (Victim #1) receives an unsolicited spam, and the party
whose domain name was forged onto the message (Victim #2) is blamed for sending the
spam, which he had nothing to do with. As a result, Victim #2 has his email flooded
with bounced emails (sometimes completely shutting down his email server), gets
blacklisted by anti-spam companies that assume he really is a spammer, and has his
reputation tarnished by those who do not realize that he, too, is a victim. (For a
more detailed explanation visit Steve’s Joe Job Page
In fact, if you investigate this spam in more detail, you'll probably find that
the IP address that the spam came from doesn't belong to the spammer either: it
belongs to some average joe whose machine got used by the spammer.
