I was cruising the web and came across this spamassassin hack called PDF Module for Spamassassin. It took me about 10 minutes to install/configure on my server. I noticed a slight increase in average server load, but nothing dramatic. Comparing the first 24 hours, it *feels* like the amount of PDF spam has decreased. No way to quantify results with only 24 hours of run-time and a configuration file that can be tweaked.

If you find anything better for controlling PDF spam let me know. Unfortunately I cannot just disable PDF attachments on my server, so that is not an option. Otherwise I would take the easy way out of this spam tide.

So this seems to have worked for me, it may not work for you. It is not a total elimination, but a reduction in PDF spam. Your mileage may vary. Don't shoot the messenger is this does not work on your server. Good Luck!
