Monetizing spambot activity and understanding its relation with spambot traffic features

Syed Fida Gillani, Ehab Al-Shaer, Sardar Ali, Syed Ali Khayam
2012 Proceedings of the 7th ACM Symposium on Information, Computer and Communications Security - ASIACCS '12  
We use standard consumer economic theory to translate spam activity to spammer utility.  ...  Spam botnets are no more driven by personal agenda, fun or proof of skills but by an underlying economic engine.  ...  A commodity c k represents the total outcome of a botnet with µ (idt) = 0 and increasing the IDT really reduces the effective outcome of a commodity.  ...

Pricing Electronic Mail to Solve the Problem of Spam

Spam and Beyond: An Information-Economic Analysis of Unwanted Commercial Messages

Robert Plice, Oleg Pavlov, Nigel Melville
2008 Journal of Organizational Computing and Electronic Commerce  
It is also shown that both public and private entities have adopted policies and practices that have had unintentional informational side effects that have tended to increase, rather than reduce, spam  ...  1 Sapm and beyond: An information-economic analysis of unwanted commercial messages Abstract The phenomenon of unwanted commercial messages (UCM), including e-mail spam and emerging forms that target other  ...  For example, a significant portion of worldwide investment in network infrastructure is consumed by the transmission of e-mail spam; in fact, most Internet e-mail traffic is spam. 1 This remains the  ...

Traffic classification-based spam filter

Ni Zhang, Yu Jiang, Binxing Fang, Xueqi Cheng, Li Guo
2006 2006 IEEE International Conference on Communications  
We propose an unsupervised spam filter called Bulk Mail Traffic Classification (BMTC) for filtering junk mails from the perspective of ISPs.  ...  Then we can decide whether or not a particular email category is spam by the number of similar mails of this category and take measures to filter it.  ...  Although these filtering mechanisms can effectively reduce the impact of spam on an individual user, they do nothing to protect network resources wasted by spam.  ...

Using uncensored communication channels to divert spam traffic

Benjamin Chiao, Jeffrey MacKie-Mason
2012 Information Economics and Policy  
We characterize the circumstances under which senders would voluntarily move much of their spam into the open channel, leaving the traditional email channel dominated by person-to-person mail.  ...  Only recipients wanting spam will use the open channel enjoying the less disguised messages and cheaper sale prices, and for all recipients the dissatisfaction associated with both undesirable mail received  ...  We also lay groundwork for systematic modeling of spam, and the consequent development of solutions that are effective because they address economic features of the problem.  ...

Finding A Recipe For Spam

Chris Rose
2011 Review of Business Information Systems (RBIS)  
Of the two options, the quickest and easiest remedy would be to eliminate the reverse economics of sending spam by introducing a computing cost for sending e-mail.  ...  The prevalence of unsolicited e-mail, otherwise called spam, continues to haunt every user of the Internet.  ...  There have been many attempts to introduce a computing cost to sending e-mail and Microsoft has a project called the Penny Black project which is investigating several techniques to reduce spam by making  ...

Impact of Spam Exposure on User Engagement

Anirban Dasgupta, Kunal Punera, Justin M. Rao, Xuanhui Wang
2012 USENIX Security Symposium  
Using our matching technique, we objectively quantify the effect that continued exposure to spam has on user engagement in Yahoo! Mail.  ...  We find that indeed spam exposure leads to significantly, both statistically and economically, lower user engagement.  ...  mail usage. Controlling for mail usage reduces the estimated impact of spam exposure by 80% -the remaining figures are no longer statistically significant.  ...

Towards Self-Learning and Fully Transparent UCE Prevention

Wilfried N. Gansterer, Michael Ilger
2008 Sicherheit  
Finally, a third component introduces adaptability for ensuring that only spam is blocked and that no regular mail traffic is affected.  ...  It acts at the source of each e-mail message and controls the traffic going out of a network, thus avoiding common drawbacks of standard spam filtering techniques.  ...  Economic Background The commercial success of spamming is related directly to the number of spam messages sent out per time unit.  ...

Understanding and Reversing the Profit Model of Spam

Paul Judge, Dmitri Alperovitch, Weilai Yang
2005 Workshop on the Economics of Information Security  
Detrimental effects of spam on the Internet In this section we explore the size of the spam problem and its effects. Years ago, spam was considered a minor nuisance.  ...  Therefore, it can be argued that the spam problem is disrupting the positive use of the Internet and has a profound effect that goes well beyond e-mail.  ...

Fuzzy Logic Approach for Email SPAM Detection System

Damian Prihadi, Vivin Trisyanti
2020 Zenodo  
The emergence of spam really annoys e-mail users because it can increase bandwidth usage, it also significantly reduces storage capacity on the server.  ...  The final result of the whole process is the formation of a cluster or group of e-mails that are identified as SPAM and those that are not SPAM.  ...  The emergence of spam is very disturbing to e-mail users because it can increase the usage of internet connection bandwidth, and will become a pile of garbage, thereby reducing storage capacity.  ...

End-users' resource consumption of spam and a 3D anti-spam evaluation framework

Minh Tran, Grenville Armitage
2005 TENCON 2005 - 2005 IEEE Region 10 Conference  
In this paper, we particularly examine the network consumption of spam.  ...  We quantify the end-user's network resource consumption caused by spam as a function of different email retrieving mechanisms, and estimate the financial costs of spam for both residential and business  ...  Economics-based and rate-limiting solutions impose less costs in terms of 'spam reduction' since they can slow down and reduce the amount of spam emails sent by spammers.  ...
