Any type of spam is fine. Most important part is that the original headers are included.

Just sent you one from my AOL e-mail. I get loads more spam. Can I send spam to you in bulk as attachments, like I can do with SpamCop?

I have gotten a number of replies to the SpamCop reports, but one of the latest has been more descriptive.

Apparently the WordPress pages themselves are acting as mailservers. They are compromised due to being unpatched. In this case, ports 25, 487, and 465 had not been firewalled by the hosting provider.

MysteryFCM, does it-mate.co.uk get feeds from Knujon or Spamcop? Or, why not?

I don't get feeds from them (IIRC, they charge for access to those), no, just from some of their users (it-mate.co.uk is my personal domain)

I have seen plenty of these click-baits on facebook but I haven't received any in my email.

This spam seems to have disappeared, but now it's back, and this time the spammers are really stupid.

No longer do the messages have specific titles. The messages now have similar variations "Your Startling Babes Gallery", "Your Best Adult Content", "Your Amazing Teen Videos", etc. The bodies still contain hacked WordPress and forum sites.

It should be noted that a great majority of these messages have the words "shocking" or "teen" in the title. Obviously messages with these keywords seemed to result in more action from the SpamCop reports I file for all of these messages.

The latter word would suggest illegal content that probably puts SpamCop into a hairy situation. For that reason I redacted the keywords in the quote.
