Hälyx: Selling security to spamtraps

Something calling itself “Hälyx” is advertising business security services to spamtraps.  The message contains the admission that the source of the register they operate, which they decline to name as required by law, are “public address sources on the Internet”.

The spam service provider is Panic Marketing, no stranger to us here, unfortunately, who also operate the web bug in this message (“<img src=’http://static.dmt.panic.fi/scripts/handle_reademail.php?x=<timestamp.x.x.swift@dmt.panic.fi>’>).

The sender is quite possibly Hälyx Oy, given the inclusion of www.halyx.fi links in the spam; see biz reg, www. They are failing to identify themselves in the spam as required by Section 28 of the relevant law and as required of limited companies in general.
