GFI: Combating Spam

Thursday, October 22, 2009

A series of interesting whitepapers from GFI on compabiting SPAM from the enterprise level. Many of these concepts have been best-practice recommendations for years, yet many email and anti-SPAM packages fail to implement them properly.

There have been many talks in the OWASP Leaders mailing list over the past few weeks on just how weak many email systems and SPAM-filtering systems are with the basics. These articles from GFI cover some of the common areas of attack and prevention and are worth a read. 

These whitepapers cover attachment-based SPAM risks,  NDR (non delivery reciept) tricks and the value of Bayesian filtering.
