Virus Spam Emails from Wordpres.Us Domain

I've been receiving lately many spam emails with blank subjects and with just a link to a website using the domain Wordpres.Us

Apparently it uses the username of the email address of the sender and creates a subdomain and a blog post of the spammed product e.g. for username the URL would be like

http://username.wordpres.us/07/10/the-effect-this-menopause-medication-produce-on-my-health.html

Solutions and Countermeasure:

I sent an email advisory on the spam email, instructed our email administrator to block the keyword wordpres.us and blocked wordpress.us in our company proxy server. No idea yet on what virus is causing the sending of the spoof email messages yet as I'm feeling lazy.
