Subject: Email obfuscation improvement suggestion
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 696b
Just a tip to improve the obfuscation just a bit. If you mix in some div tags, you can really muddle up a harvester. foo.bar@example.com fo<div style="display: none; visibility: hidden;"> some-random-meaningless-string </div>o.bar@<div style="display: none; visibility: hidden;"> new-and-different-random-meaningless-string </div>examp<div style="display: none; visibility: hidden;"> yet-another-different-random-meaningless-string </div>le.c<div style="display: none; visibility: hidden;"> one-more-different-random-meaningless-string </div>om Note the inclusion of the div tags in the middle of words, not just at the regular word boundaries.

Thanks for the suggestion. I rely on the HTML::Email::Obfuscate module by Adam Kennedy, so I think it would probably be best to suggest these changes to him; that way, if he decides to incorporate the change, all the users of his module could benefit. (I'm sending him a CC of this message.) Cheers, Ivan [guest - Thu Dec 22 18:35:24 2005]: Show quoted text
