Spam, Spim and Splog spins out of control

Steeenkin' spammers are increasingly turning their evil gaze in the direction of SMS, Web-based instant messaging, bloggers and community sites like MySpace.com, according to MessageLabs.


The mail services company said that spammers are looking to bypass e-mail-based antispam measures by targeting spam on "age, location and other characteristics."


Mark Sunner, chief technical officer at MessageLabs, warned that social-networking sites offer spammers a "new level of convergence and capability to profile people."


The company also noted an increase in IM spam ("spim"), with spammers sending just a hyperlink, which can direct users lead to a malicious site, or a phishing site.
