Spam reveals its darker side - PCstats.com Spam reveals its darker side
Wed, July 14 2004 | 4:54PM | PermaLink Feedback?
"Spam is subtly shifting from nuisance to illegality, says a new report from security firm Clearswift. It has been measuring spam for the past year and has noticed a change in what is cluttering people's inboxes. It seems spam is a hotbed of financial scams as well as a black market for fake pharmaceuticals and software.

"Spam is now being used as a channel for a plethora of malicious and illegal activity," said Clearswift's technical director, Alyn Hockey."

It breaks down like this:

1 - Finance (39%)
2 - Healthcare (30.6%)
3 - Other (15%)
4 - Direct Products (9.6%)
5 - Porn/Profanity (4.8%)
6 - Scams (1%)
