contents are different every time

Bad news, that pdf attachment contains the advertisement or the image.
  

Actually, there is no appliance works on this perfectly. The pdf size 
should be big or small.

Hi List,

We operate several mail servers with catch all accounts and have
      
      
noticed
  
  
a lot of Mailer Daemon 'delivery failed messages mails from genuine
sites (mostly German)arriving recently. It would seem the spammers
      
      
are
  
  
sending out e-mails with a PDF attachment and a forged senders
      
      
address
  
  
to bogus recipients at these organizations whose mail server rejects
      
      
the
  
  
message and sends notification to the forged sender. We have opened
      
      
one
  
  
attachment on an isolated machine and it was one of the 'watch these
stocks they're going through the roof messages (not exactly sure of
      
      
the
  
  
details as my German is a bit rusty). My concern is that there could
      
      
be
  
  
a 'payload' embedded in the PDF. Is this possible?
