Blog and Social Networking Spam Increases

More spammers are taking advantage of the latest communications methods, a mail services vendor has warned


Spammers are increasingly turning to mobile text messaging, Web-based instant messaging, blogs and social-networking communities such as MySpace.com, according to mail services company MessageLabs on Thursday.


The company, which sells a Web-filtering and instant messaging service, said in its latest monthly malware report that spammers were increasingly targeting new means of communication to "bypass email-based anti-spam measures, and more effectively target recipients based on their age, location and other characteristics."


Social networking sites offer spammers a "new level of convergence and capability to profile people," said Mark Sunner, chief technical officer for MessageLabs.
