Best Ways Of Dealing With Email Spamming
In my previous article, I have talked about email and other activities of hackers that can affect network security generally. In this article, I want to talk about some of the ways of dealing with email spamming in network security. Follow me as we will look at that together in this article.
Now, let’s talk about email. We spend a big part of the day dealing with our inbox. In fact, 300 billions of email are sent across the globe every single day. Email is the number one infection vector for all kinds of malware, including ransomware. A common form of malware transmission is via attachments. If you receive an email with an attachment, and the email is from someone you don’t know, you probably should not open the attachment.
Let’s back off and talk about how you receive this email in the first place. No matter if it is class spam or phishing, someone has your email address and it is been passed around among spammers. While it is difficult to keep your email completely secret, there are many ways to make your email less valuable to spammers. One of the most effective ways is to configure your email client not to display downloaded graphic messages. With spam, the mere act of downloading email images tells the spammer that there is someone looking at that email messages.
This always increases the value of your email address as a target. Most email clients that support this action will allow you to download the images for legitimate email messages. Therefore, they look well-formatted and easier to read. Generally, spam does not request an action, and to prevent further messages from the sender, simply mark that email as junks and block the sender.
