Spam Detection Software

After being annoyed by spammer exploiting customers’ websites to send millions of spam emails. Sapmmers usually find holes ont he mal-coded software used by customers most of them are content management systems, guest books and contact us forms. The developed system wraps the sendmail linux tool with a script which would log all emails being send by the user ‘nobody’. The software then checks periodically any unusual activities in the log files, and if there is a spam detected, the abused or “abusing” account will be suspended.

The bad thing if we let spammers do their job is that IPs will be blacklisted by most ISP and email providers and therefore no legitmate email out, in addition to the legal notices and more headaches!
