The high false alarm rate appears during the traditional spam recognition method processing the large-scale unbalanced data. A method which transforms the unbalanced issue into the balanced issue is proposed, when the K-means clustering algorithm is improved based on the support vector machine classification model, to obtain the balanced training set. Firstly, the improved K-means clustering algorithm clusters spam and extracts the typical spam,then the training set consists of the typical spam

Comparing the K-SVM filtration method to standard SVM method through the experiment, the result indicates that the K-SVM filtration method in large-scale unbalance data set can obtain high classified efficiency and the generalization performance.
