Cisco IronPort reports that messages about swine flu now make up 4% of global spam messages.
Here are some of the subject lines you will be seeing in your inboxes soon:
- Swine flu worldwide
- Swine flu in the USA
- Swine flu fears
- First US swine flu victims
- Swine flu in Hollywood
- Salma Hayek caught swine flu
- Madonna caught swine flu
Those last two subject lines are particularly devastating to anyone who is a fan of bad 1990s comedies co-starring Matthew Perry or mediocre 1980s pop music.
