    SPAMMERS appear to be more concerned about our health than our wealth, as the number of spam emails continues to rise.

    Internet security provider Marshal has released the findings of its latest Threat Research and Content Engineering report for the second half of 2007, which found that the total volume of spam increased by more than 50 per cent.

    Spam promoting pharmaceuticals, such as weight loss pills, was the dominant category in 2007, comprising nearly 70 per cent of all spam.

    The biggest drop in spam was for emails relating to stocks and options, comprising only one per cent of all spam, compared to 50 per cent in February 2007.

    "The decline of stock spam could be due to overuse of stock spam leading to declining returns to spammers, or the actions of securities commissions and law enforcement authorities," Marshal vice-president of products Bradley Anstis said.

    Spam containing images was down 5 per cent as spammers reverted back to plain text and HTML formats during the latter half of 2007.

    Banking customers remained the number one target for phishing emails, which make up approximately 0.5 per cent all spam.

    The report also highlighted the emergence of several new botnets, which have overtaken the infamous Storm botnet as the largest sources of the worldwide spam.

    A botnet is a network of computers that, unbeknownst to their users, forward transmissions, such as spam, viruses and malware, to other computers linked to the internet.

    Mega-D, a botnet that heavily promotes male sexual enhancement pills, accounted for 32 per cent of all spam in circulation in November-December 2007.
    Mr Anstis said spammers continued to stay a step ahead of police and online security experts.

    "Despite the increased efforts of law enforcement agencies to crack down on spammers and their botnets, spam and malware distribution became even worse in 2007," he said.

    "The cost of acquiring the tools and services needed to send spam is reducing and yet the financial motives of the cybercriminal underworld that sustains spam appear to remain strong.

    "For these reasons, we are not optimistic that spam is going to recede in 2008."
  2. Well, there's egg and bacon; egg sausage and bacon; egg and spam; egg bacon and spam; egg bacon sausage and spam; spam bacon sausage and spam; spam egg spam spam bacon and spam; spam sausage spam spam bacon spam tomato and spam . . .
  3. I don't like spam!
  4. I get maybe 50 of these a day, mostly to increase my manhood also! I just delete but I scream inside "I don't have a bloody penis to lengthen & viagra would sure be lost on me" :roflmfao:
  5. ^^Caitlin you have been watching too much Monty Python :smile:
  6. No, I haven't!

    Look, if I argue with you, I must take up a contrary position.
    Yes, but that's not just saying 'No it isn't.'
    Yes it is!
    No it isn't!
  7. Sorry . . . .

    I don't get that much spam because I have a filter that separates the stuff I want to read from the rest of the crap.
  8. Oh like that is it :smile:

    M: Ah. I'd like to have an argument, please.
    R: Certainly sir. Have you been here before?
    M: No, I haven't, this is my first time.
    R: I see. Well, do you want to have just one argument, or were you thinking of taking a course?
    M: Well, what is the cost?
    R: Well, It's one pound for a five minute argument, but only eight pounds for a course of ten.
    M: Well, I think it would be best if I perhaps started off with just the one and then see how it goes.
    R: Fine. Well, I'll see who's free at the moment.
    R: Mr. DeBakey's free, but he's a little bit conciliatory.
    Ahh yes, Try Mr. Barnard; room 12.
    M: Thank you.
  9. ^^ :yes::roflmfao:

    By Jove, I think you've got it!

    I'll stop before I bring out the Dead Parrot sketch.
  10. I keep getting emails from ladies who say they saw my "profile" and would love to meet me; OR email me if you want to ****.

    Last time I checked, I was only into guys, and I am pretty sure I am not interested in f**king chicks.

    I have never signed up on any website. Why on earth would they think I am interested in women?
  11. I get a lot of spam too...good thing Gmail has a great spam filter. I keep getting emails asking if I want a bigger penis. I don't want a penis at all, let alone a bigger one :upsidedown:
  12. What I want to know is there really a dude named Anchovy M. Imbalances? :lol: :rolleyes:
  13. Yes :lol: I love the names that some of the spam come through with...come on are we really going to open an email with a name like that?
  14. I like my spam lightly fried and served with eggs over easy and toast.

    I just send it all to the spam files. Had I checked them, I would have not only had a penis of my own, but scores of females to use it with, and enough drugs to float the Queen Mary... not to mention I'd be billions of dollars richer from all the government officials who wish to gift me with millions of dollars...
  15. My dad once got some spam from someone with a name that was a bit close to home, it was my first name and my OH's surname :nuts:
