    DomainKeys Offers Phishing Solution - You're Not Alone


    (Page 3 of 4 )

    As you can imagine, these kinds of problems keep information security professionals on their toes. It is a serious concern not only for the people who make your web-based email run, but for the people who own the sites which those scammers claim to represent. 

    The most noticeable of improvements, at least to the average end user, is the advent of the spam box, a dumping ground for all of the crap that comes to your inbox each and every day of the year. It is a stroke of genius, no doubt about that, but deciding what goes into that box can be a tricky affair.

    There is a list of certain key words which will get your message a one-way no-return-ticket trip to the spam folder. One of your own messages may have ended up there if its subject line contained one of them. But when the words in the header aren't keywords that trigger a one way dump, how do you tell the real messages with real and needed information about your services from those of scammers? 

    Content scanning is an option that might reduce the spam and scams, but the thought of having one all-seeing, unblinking digital eye reading all of our messages is a bit too Orwellian for most of us. Besides, from a technical standpoint it would take a large number of resources, both physical and virtual, to read the billions upon billions of messages sent all around the world in the average week.

    The average company would more than likely be unable to absorb those extra costs. The alternative is to find a way to pass them off to the end users. That means either ask your users to pay for email or put in enough ads to bring back nightmares of the heyday of pop-up banners.
