Came across something rather strange today. I received my first spam message to my westerfunk.net account after quite a long time. So I decided to check out where it originated from in the mailserver logs. Well it was a Google IP (yes, I ran a WHOIS on the IP to make sure), and the reverse address was hu-out-0506.google.com. Looking into the headers of the email, I observed further down that the originating IP from the spammer to Google’s servers was 22.214.171.124. This IP is in Spain apparently. Could it be spammers are now figuring out a way to use Google to start sending spam now via Google servers? I hope not … here are the [edited] headers.
