Get in touch with me as soon as possible.

Do you Yahoo!?

Analysis: This is by far the strangest spam we've ever gotten -- it contains no virus attachment or a link for us to click. It's not even advertising anything. It's just a cryptic request for us to get in touch with the sender.

Is there some sort of new technology that allows a virus to be sent simply by replying to an email from what looks to be a Yahoo account? Or has the jibberish in spam evolved to the point where actually advertising things is no longer even the point?

This may not be particularly amusing spam, so if you were looking forward to that, we're sorry. But you can't deny that it is very intriguing and confusing.
