Just spotted the following redirected URL in a spam. Doesn't look like it
will be getting caught yet with the current redirector rules:

http://images.google.ca/imgres?imgurl=gmib.free.fr/viagra.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.google.com/url?q=http://www.google.com/url?q=%68%74%74%70%3A%2F%2F%77%77%77%2E%65%78%70%61%67%65%2E%63%6F%6D%2F%6D%61%6E%67%65%72%33%32

Using images.google.ca as a redirector ? Thats a new one.... I'm not game
to click on the link to see where it goes though... its from the same
spammer that was blatently abusing the yahoo redirectors and msn ones...

Is this a sign that the current system used in SpamCopURI (checking HTTP
responses of specifically mentioned redirectors) is just going to play
catchup all the time ?

Regards,
Simon
