What is image-based spam?
Image-based spam is not new. Simply, it is spam that encapsulates its message within an image (typically a GIF). The image, however, is corrupted such that it is rendered unreadable to most OCR technologies. Further, because of the method used for corrupting the image creates almost unique messages, the spam is more likely to get through because it’s not identified by anti-spam engines as being a “bulk” email ... though bulk it is ... spammers now have access to technologies that will produce literally millions of spam messages each hour.
The increase that you’ve been observing is a new twist on existing possibilities. Fortunately, EXL have a solution!
