Spam Approaches 95% of All Email - Spam Approaches 95% of All Email
Mon, April 19 2004 | 10:23PM | PermaLink Feedback?
The global junk mail plague is to get dramatically worse as criminal spammers take control of victims' PCs and use them as anonymous proxies to send email via their ISPs' mail relay. According to anti-spam organisation Spamhaus the recent increase in this proxy-spam activity is caused by newly engineered versions of stealth proxy-spam software released by spammers. "New versions of proxy packages released by Russian spammers operating in the US now have a feature which instructs the hijacked proxy to send the spam out via the mail relay of the ISP to which the proxy is downstream," Spamhaus warned.

"At the current pace spam could reach 95 per cent of all email traffic by mid-2006, when we would see the beginning of a slow meltdown of email delivery systems caused by overloaded queues and stressed filters."
