E-mail spam, also known as bulk e-mail or junk e-mail is a subset of spam that involves sending nearly identical messages to numerous recipients by e-mail. A common synonym for spam is unsolicited bulk e-mail (UBE). Definitions of spam usually include the aspects that email is unsolicited and sent in bulk.[1][2][3][4][5] UCE refers specifically to unsolicited commercial e-mail.

Recently i have received few email spam from difference source. Previously the email spam has been a long text from introduction to the last objective paragraph which would like you to click certain address. As most reader will feel boring reading long text email and tends to ignore it...

Nowadays the email spam has changed the pattern to something like simple text send by your friends. For example "My friends, something funny here...http://##.##.###.###/", "I am sending this to my best friends...something cute...http://##.##.###.###/", etc.

Let see an example



Two emails received from different "SENDER" having same SUBJECT, same CONTENT with different OBJECTIVE. Content looks friendly and sound like message from one of my friend...

Reader psychologically tends to feel that it is friend may have changed their email address recently and sent some funny stuff for your appreciation.

Clicking on the link may lead to many installation of spyware, adware, cookies, etc into your computer and the worst it is non-removable until you reformat your harddisk...Guhhh...see the impact !

JUST BE ALERT ! DELETE THESE EMAIL without doing anything !
