The reason you keep coming across these meaningless and obviously computer-generated domains is that they're being used by spammers who hope to avoid spam filters by regularly using new domains. The spam is most likely yet another "this stock is about to skyrocket, you don't want to miss this opportunity!" fraud. In this case, "Why the Spam Got Nasty," on the Tech News World website, detects an interesting side effect of this tactic. The spammers "have created a world of chaos for many organizations that use shared hosting plans," said Violeta Shifman, vice president of Total Uptime Technologies. As these domains are used for short times and quickly abandoned, mail servers receive a lot of bounce messages from these domains (potentially indicating that mail sent from that server was spam), which can be misinterpreted as an indication that the server is sending lots of spam (often the case if a server has been hacked, as a neighbour of mine found out to his cost some time back). When bounced mail arrives at the sender - lots of it, in the case of a popular spam technique - "the effect can be devastating," says Shifman. So bouncing today's spam may be causing more spam problems for tomorrow. And please don't buy any of stock in companies whose stock gets pushed around by spammers - you're just losing your money to an advance fee fraud, the spammer's real aim.
