FrontBridge Forecasts Big Spam Season

2004-12-14 13:07:00

FrontBridge Technologies said today that spam volumes topped 93 percent in November which sets a new record since FrontBridge started recording business-email spam volumes four years ago. Based on the increase in volume, the company's analytics team predicts a grim outlook through the remainder of the holiday season.

Spam is expected to increase until the New Year, but then volumes should taper of at least a little bit as spammers return to "normal" operations in the early part of 2005. "Spammers are using new delivery methods to ensure this holiday season is as profitable for them as it is for legitimate retailers," said Dan Nadir, vice president of product management, FrontBridge Technologies.

Nadir noted that the increase is definitely the result of the Botnet phenomenon that uses innocent PCs as spam-relay boxes.

Nadir also mentioned that FrontBridge now scans for Sender Policy Framework (SPF) information in sender records to authenticate sending email domains. It has also published SPF records for its own domain to ensure that messages sent via the FrontBridge network are accurately identified as being legitimate.
