I do not know but I have the feeling that the spam comes from hacked
Windows accounts. I never got this kind of spam via the list but only
to the address I am using here. After reporting the issue to the owner
of the IP used for sending the spam out, it stopped until another
Windows machine got hacked.

It also could be just a test for hacking Windows machine and also a
test for how long they can be used. The spam as such does not make any
sense except the girls really only want to find clients. I cannot
imagine that this will work with e-mail addresses from a list like this.
