Spammers exploit Evite

And this article from the Washington Post. Spammers have found a way to get around Evite's anti-spam restrictions. The article doesn't say how, but I assume that 'bots were used to open multiple Evite accounts or create multiple events.

The spam informed victims that they'd just won a Scottish lottery. It was probably an advance fee fraud of some sort, or perhaps a phish.
