Seed Spambots
Generates HTML pages and email addresses to fool spambots

Seed Spambots generates HTML pages and email addresses for spambots, sending them to a honeypot SMTP server which reports checksum data to various clearinghouses and gathers other spam statistics. Most other spambot feeders simply invent fake domains and email addresses, which is of limited use since most spammers verify their lists prior to using them.
