Spamming Someone from PayPal
Troy Hunt has identified a new spam vector. PayPal allows someone to send someone else a $0 invoice. The spam is in the notes field. But it's a legitimate e-mail from PayPal, so it evades many of the traditional spam filters.
Presumably it doesn't cost anything to send a $0 invoice via PayPal. Hopefully, the company will close this loophole soon.
