I've been wondering about this myself - I think the main steps would be:

* mechanism to trawl URLs - e.g. crawl everything that you get in your spam
* detection of compromise, and analysis

You could do this in a VM and use snort to alert when the thing gets
compromised and do a manual analysis. There are also low interaction
solutions - here are a couple of references:
