Overview

Learn about different types of image spam, why its hard to stop, and how to effectively prevent it.


Image Spam is the latest attempt by spammers to bypass spam filters by incorporating their sales pitch into an image, rather than sending it as plain text. 

Spammers have now fired a barrage of image spam using randomized images that appear identical to the human eye, yet appear to be entirely unique to most anti-spam software. Many of the changes to the images contained within spam messages are so subtle that they require a pixel-by-pixel examination of the image in order to detect the differences. Read how Secure Computing's IronMail with TrustedSource reputation technology provides an effective tool in blocking image spam and in keeping enterprises ahead of the spammers.
