Stopping spammers in their tracks

Monday, 22 November 2004, 9:48 AM EST

Over here in Europe, we may think that we are inundated by spam, but spam is estimated to account for just 20% to 30% of the e-mails that we receive. Some may counter that this is still too much, but it pales in significance compared to the 90% of e-mail traffic that is estimated to be spam in the US today. Part of the reason for this is that spam is still largely an English language problem. But the volume of spam in other European languages is growing rapidly and US-based security vendors are warning Europeans not to be complacent - without systems to adequately deal with spam, it is only a matter of time until we face the same deluge as is currently affecting US firms and consumers.
