IBM's Weapon Against Spam

IBM has unveiled technology that blocks spam by identifying the domain of the sender as opposed to looking at the actual content of the message.

The software is called FairUCE which stands for "Fair use of Unsolicited Commercial E-mail".

According to InformationWeek, IBM claims that it "virtually eliminates spoofed E-mail address, phishing, and many viruses".

That can be said of the virtually any anti-spam system today, most of which block somewhere between 95% and 99% of incoming spam.

"Spam is one of the few security success stories," says Bruce Schneier, founder and CTO of Counterpane Internet Security. "I get no spam."

It has been suggested that IBM's software sends spam back to the sender.

"That's not actually right," according to Steve Linford, director of antispam lobbyist Spamhaus. "It isn't sending anything back to spammers. You can't fight abuse with abuse, and that's not what IBM is doing."
