Slide 7

A touch of history I did a discussion on spam in 2000 around then, Perimeter was getting under 100 TOTAL spam messages for every day We began searching for an answer for what appeared a "major" issue

Slide 8

Fast forward - January 2003 Of 2000-3000 messages for each day, 500-800 were spam 20-25% of all got

Slide 9

July 2003 Typical day, we got around 3000-5000 messages 30-40% were spam! Weekends, with honest to goodness mail volume down, spam was around 60-70% Some clients got more than 200 every day!

Slide 10

June 2005 Typical day, we got around 5000-7000 messages 65+% were spam! Weekends were around 85-90% Staff aren\'t seeing a great part of the garbage – expresses gratitude toward Barracuda

Slide 11

May, 2006 (run of the mill) 6000-8000 approaching messages for each day 4000-5500 immediately dismisses as spam (70-85%) 150-300 "suspicious" 1800-2500 really conveyed Weekends have less honest to goodness mail; very little change in the garbage! (90+% spam) We know we\'re not finding everything

Slide 12

Some fast Perimeter Spam Statistics

Slide 13

~10:55 AM 5/15/2006

Slide 14

What is spam? Who sends it?

Slide 15

Some straightforward (free) definitions SPAM: Junk mail you don\'t need Trying to offer you something Or attempting to motivate you to make some move UCE: Unsolicited Commercial Email The official name; minor specialized difference Viruses (counting Trojans, time bombs, worms, and so forth.): programs that plan hurt. These are NOT spam!

Slide 16

Commercial Email Is there such an unbelievable marvel as honest to goodness (Solicited) Commercial Email? Most likely Subscriptions you request: CNN, Fox, WSB Christianity Today Family Life Today American Airlines, Delta, Church bulletins Etc.

Slide 17

Commercial email (cont) If you quit needing email you requested, that does NOT make it spam! You have to unsubscribe Please don\'t regard as spam – you may foul up other individuals who still need these mailings

Slide 18

More definitions Urban Legends: Stories that are interesting and sound genuine But as a rule aren\'t Hoaxes: Somewhere amongst spam and Urban Legend; particularly infection tricks Chain Mail: "forward this to everybody you know." Often a Urban Legend or Hoax Phishing: particular plan to accumulate [steal] individual information

Slide 19

Aside Possible urban legends, and so on. Look at on snopes before conveying http://www.snopes.com

Slide 20

Some "certainties" about spammers They lie! They offer your email location to others They couldn\'t care less [much] about dead addresses (NDRs) They utilize numerous "collecting" instruments Most have little ethical quality A couple are unfortunates who have been hoodwinked by "you also can get rich utilizing the Internet"

Slide 21

"Falsehood" is a solid word I trust it\'s the right word We (clients) frequently fall for these untruths. Specifically: A spam message regularly begins with "you are getting this since you requested it." It frequently closes with "snap here to evacuate yourself." Is #1 an untruth? At that point why do you accept #2?

Slide 22

Anti-spam 101 specifics Handout 10 parallels this presentation

Slide 23

How would you get on a spammer\'s rundown? Frequently, intentionally! All things considered, now and again individuals do senseless things Especially when "free" is utilized By enlisting on sketchy locales By not perusing painstakingly By uncovering your email address on ANY site

Slide 24

How would you get on? (cont.) By succumbing to deceptions If you forward this … you\'ll get $$$ ... Reacting to tricks/tests Responding to spam! Keep an eye out for joke records And "fun" records Choosing your family and companions indiscreetly This may take some clarifying

Slide 25

How spammers harvest messages Spammers have a lot of instruments for finding new addresses They filter numerous report sources separating email addresses They add those locations to their rundowns And offer them to different spammers

Slide 26

Harvesting (cont.) Where do they get the hotspots for reaping? From you. (unquestionably not) What about your companions? What\'s more, family? Any individual who "uncovered" a great deal of locations is an issue Mass forwarders

Slide 27

Harvesting (cont.) Exposed addresses How about deceptions of the "forward this to your companions" sort? Those messages that request that you include your companions\' messages for fraudulent business models EXPECT that a spammer at last will see these messages AND concentrate the messages

Slide 28

Virus/spam cover Some late infections appear to have been composed particularly to uncover email addresses Spammers got those locations

Slide 29

Practical shirkings Do a web hunt down your own email address At Perimeter, you have a few. Check all of them If you discover your email address on the web, you can expect spammers will as well, inevitably Avoid "forward this to everybody you know" messages Don\'t send them Look out when you get them

Slide 30

Avoidances (cont.) Hide addresses when messaging Use dispensable email addresses for conceivably dangerous requirements Use answer to-all sparingly, or better, not in any way Beware utilizing your email address in the interest of your kids or others; particularly having them utilize your email address

Slide 31

Home Avoidances (self-evident?) Use Anti-infection programming and stay up with the latest. (day by day overhauls to example records!) Use a hostile to spyware apparatus Use various login accounts – stay away from "director" settings SpamAware, AVG – great, shoddy (free!)

Slide 32

So what\'s the point? Pick your companions well Teach the advantages of BCC AND lie/Urban Legend research AND tidying up locations in advances Or even better… Teach your companions not to forward Easy, correct?

Slide 33

Can you be a piece of the arrangement? Educate other about concealing locations Teach others about phishing Teach others NOT to answer to spam Teach other NOT to mass forward Avoid insignificant email messages, including connection just email. Show others the same Avoid "executioner" subjects and expressions

Slide 34

One more thought What about Plaxo and Jigsaw and comparative administrations for staying aware of email locations? My sentiment: Risky! Some oppose this idea. Admonition Emptor. Goodness, hold up, it\'s free! Gee…

Slide 35

How would you get off spam records? I have awful news: You don\'t! You particularly don\'t get off by attempting to unsubscribe That can regularly compound the situation Remember – they are liars

Slide 36

What would you be able to do? Switch to another email address (nom de plume) Carefully advise others of the new address Wean yourself from the old address How rapidly would you be able to stand? Try not to anticipate that it will be easy

Slide 37

Good email messages Non-paltry subjects Subject doesn\'t begin with hey, hi, or hey Worse if that is the whole subject! Non-minor message content NOT only a connection (counting pictures) If answering, incorporate the first, or concentrates But, obviously, stifling email addresses

Slide 38

Email Headers Handout 11 is stuff a great many people would prefer not to know Sometimes you have to know it What about non-Outlook clients?

Slide 39

Learn all your email false names (does this apply to your congregation?) See present 12 As a Perimeter staff part, you have a great deal of email addresses, all going to a solitary letter drop You can have more (why!?) You can utilize "expendable" locations
