Green party says sorry for e-mail gaffe
Times nline UK
“Since sending the e-mails I have received reams of information about thedifferent standards of communicating with bloggers and journalists. “Some bloggers have developed their own set of rules about how they should beapproached and the e-mail in question fell foul of these rules. ”The Data Protection Commissioner defines spam as “unsolicited directmarketing”. Under its rules a business cannot send an electronic message forthe purpose of direct marketing “unless it is from someone with whom youhave a current customer relationship”. The new anti-spam legislation introduced by Ryan will allow the commissionerto refer serious breaches of the legislation for prosecution through thecircuit court where fines of up to €250000 or 10% of the offendingcompany’s turnover may be imposed. Last year the commissioner received 191 complaints about unsolicitedmarketing text messages and 70 complaints about unsolicited marketinge-mails.
Spam Protection You Can Trust
Spammers know that people are expecting mail from places like Sears and JC Penny and the spammer will use people?s trust to get to them using false addresses. This is called spoofing and can cause you all sorts of headaches. The spam protection you get with MxToolBox will stop this spam from reaching your computer so that you only get legitimate email from these companies. They have the use of a variety of anti-spam technologies that is able to recognize a message from a legitimate company and one that is from a spam site. However one of the loopholes spammers can use is created when a personal whitelist is used by the computer user. Many email programs will allow the user to whitelist an email address or a domain name which allows all the email that has been whitelisted to get straight through to the computer. This can open the door to the Whitelist Exploit.
Quantum nanotechnology may stop ID theft
Chicago Sun-Times United States
Quantum cryptography adds a second layer of protection by automatically generating a secure key whose length is flexible. Another point in quantum cryptography’s favor is that the nanotechnology involved has yet to come under criticism for health issues such as that of nanotech in foods and cosmetics. The news is particularly important as Internet shoppers grow more concerned about online threats such as viruses spam and identity theft according to a survey by the American Consumer Institute’s Center for Citizen Research. Consumers also report a considerable worry that their privacy might be compromised by programs that track and record which Internet sites they visit. Nearly three-quarters of those surveyed (74 percent) said that they were “very concerned” about identity theft compared with 68 percent who reported great worry about identity theft in a similar Consumer Institute survey released two years ago. The survey of 648 households with Internet access was conducted by telephone and included three new questions compared with the survey of two years ago. The new questions showed that privacy is a greater concern than spam.

Network Box: 2008 was a record year for spam and viruses says …

Currently spam protection has been applied using three main methods: analysis of the message content the reputation of the sender; and challenge response which works by putting the onus onto the email sender to accept a challenge from the recipient to prove who they are. Current anti-spam systems will rarely reach more than 95-98 per cent accuracy which when you consider the amount of email sent still lets through a significant number of spam emails. Challenge response systems used in isolation are notoriously unsuccessful with as little as 40 per cent of genuine email getting through the system as senders are reluctant to go through the challenge system. The difference with Network BoxA’s eMail Relationship is that it analyses and learns from behaviour of the sender and recipient of an email to give a score to the email which is applied in addition to traditional anti-spam filter analysis.

Quite simply the spam epidemic is only growing and these institutions recognized the need to increase their protection — without having to completely replace their existing solutions. As such it is a natural fit for university environments which not only boast large numbers of users but deploy both fixed and wireless technologies.
