Worse Than Spam

Sebastian Baltes, Stephan Diehl
2016 Proceedings of the 10th ACM/IEEE International Symposium on Empirical Software Engineering and Measurement - ESEM '16  
As drawing a random sample of professional software developers for a survey is rarely possible, researchers rely on various sampling strategies.  ...  Objective: In this paper, we report on our experience with different sampling strategies we employed, highlight ethical issues, and motivate the need to maintain a collection of key demographics about  ...  You might not realize this but it's majorly annoying and I consider this problem now worse than spam, since Google at least filters out spam for me. [...] [Y]ou send one, I get one per week -or more.  ...

Prevalence and mitigation of forum spamming

Youngsang Shin, Minaxi Gupta, Steven Myers
2011 2011 Proceedings IEEE INFOCOM  
In this paper, we study the prevalence of forum spamming and find that Internet users are at a high risk of encountering forums with spam links posted on them.  ...  Forums on the Web are increasingly spammed by miscreants in order to attract visitors to their (often malicious) websites.  ...  Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the NSF.  ...

Spam Filter based on Dynamic Sender Policy Framework

Tuan-Anh Nguyen, Quang-Anh Tran, Xuan-Thang Nguyen
2010 Proceedings of the Asia-Pacific Advanced Network  
A philosophic issue, which may limit the deployment of SPF, is that in order to use SPF, a network administrator needs to configure local DNS; but others, not himself, will take benefits from that configuration  ...  Results showed that the system is able to filter 98% spam and 100% phishing. Collecting and updating processes of the database are described.  ...  Based on our spam/ham set, statistical figures show that 99% of spam servers use one domain name to send spam in the period of less than 5 days.  ...

An evaluation of statistical spam filtering techniques

Le Zhang, Jingbo Zhu, Tianshun Yao
2004 ACM Transactions on Asian Language Information Processing  
The experiments also suggest that aggressive feature pruning should be avoided when building filters to be used in applications where legitimate mails are assigned a cost much higher than spams (such as  ...  This paper evaluates five supervised learning methods in the context of statistical spam filtering.  ...  Acknowledgments The authors are grateful to two anonymous reviewers whose thoughtful comments improved the quality of this paper, especially the use of TCR measure in evaluation.  ...

The Effect of SPAM Administration During a Dynamic Simulation

Russell S. Pierce
