Subject: Re: [Owasp-Malaysia] Email Scam In Malay

most of these scams prey on social behavior : in this case what some people call the 3 'ta's = wanita, harta, takhta 

in this case, the email is 
1. 'sent' by an alluringly named female (wanita) 
2. 'claims' to someone in authority (takhta) 
3. 'promises' the reader 'wealth' (harta) 

it works like a charm to those middle aged people (in their late 30s and early 40s) who feels they are 'stuck' married with a fat spouse and screaming kids. working for a 'heartless' boss, with credit card debts creating a noose around their necks (keliling pinggang). 

maybe someone on this list can create an algorithm based on these 3 'ta's ;p

I'm behind the times. How does that work? All outgoing emails from 
authorized domains should and could be digitally signed automatically 
by the originating SMTP server with a/the domain key? 


Sort of. you can refer this old article http://www.dwheeler.com/essays/easy-email-sec.html
