Spam Automation Tools

Brian Krebs links to the XRumer auto-submitter in an entry in the Washington Post Security Fix. Its interesting to see the software that is out there for pumping spam into on-line bulletin boards.
XRumer, uses search engines to gather target forums, it then automates the registration and posting of the spam. They brag in the feature list that they can get around captchas, and email verification. There is a long video demonstrating its use.
