The broadband provider, BT, has launched a new ‘spam buster’ system that aims at preventing spam attacks before they reach the inboxes. The Content Forensics spam detection system from StreamShield Networks scans millions of emails a day.

According to BT, around 80 per cent of emails sent over the internet, equivalent to 6.5 billion emails a day, are spam. A higher percentage of spam email is a cause of concern for all those associated with the Internet. Spam eats up vital national resources by unnecessarily wasting the Internet time that is so precious. All kinds of information – good and bad, and mostly bad – is transported through the Internet.

A global policy to fight spam is the need for the real world to match aspirations of the virtual world.
