Ask for spam? it exists - spam-blocker


Do you like spam? No, I'm not kidding. Each one knows what spam is, more or less every person seems to have academic by heart clean guidance like "do not click ?" "do not respond?" , "do not buy?" but--

On March 23, 2005 Mirapoint and the Radicati Group, a consulting and bazaar examination firm, on the rampage preliminary fallout of their end-user analyze on email hygiene. "This preliminary data is amazing and rather shocking to us," said Marcel Nienhuis, bazaar analyst at the Radicati Group.

The analyze shows that some end users haven't cultured the example and still make the same blunders.

Blunder 1 -- clicking on embedded links in spam (not plus the unsubscribe link) -- 31% of respondents have done it at least once. The most hazardous mistake.

Clicking on any embedded links in spam e-mail helps spammers agree on 'live' email accounts, which means more spam. What's worse, users can pick viruses, Trojans or other malicious code--just by clicking on embedded links. It may cause a mixture of problems, counting loss of confidential information--identity theft, and loss of money from bank balance sheet as a result.

Users shouldn't not recall about such danger as phishing. Not long ago, on February. 15, 2005, it was the Radicati Group that critical out --fraud and phishing types of email are one of the best ever budding segments of spam. In the first area of 2005 the Radicati Group expects counterfeit emails to reach 8% of all spam.

Blunder 2 -- annoying to unsubscribe to spam using the 'unsubscribe' link in the email -- 18% of respondents

Some users are naive a sufficient amount to think that spammers certainly won't send any junk mail to their addresses if they tell them not to. Haven't they heard that spammers use the unsubscribe link exclusively to ascertain effective email accounts. When characteristic email addresses or full domains are found to be active, they are doomed to flood of spam.

Blunder 3 -- What's more: Over 10% of respondents have purchased foodstuffs advertised in spam. Transfer out huge volumes of spam is very cheap, so let's face it--spam is an helpful means of advertising. Spam is booming, and these 10% users who essentially bought no matter which advertised by spam, are fairly to blame for it.

The penalty can be very acute when such a user is at work. Online criminals find more and more ways of stealing constructive information, some of these techniques add in spam. Spam filters won't solve the whole problem; much still depends on end users. Marcel Nienhuis, analyst from the Radicati Group, was categorically right when said " no know-how in the world can guard an organisation if users' bring to bear bad email behaviour. "
