Recently, CMS and their customers noticed larger than usual volumes of filtered RNDR mail containing randomly generated character strings as an address. Coinciding with the appearance random addressing is a massive increase in volume. In one instance, a CMS customer has noticed a day-to-day increase of 1600% in RNDR-type spam trapped by their CMS Praetor Messaging Firewall.
