How Much Viagra Is In Your Spam Folder? Probably More Today…

LockFirst, let me start by saying AccessRx does not spam. And we do not pay people to spam for us. We have a strict anti-spamming policy, and the same can be said for our processing company Secure Medical.

Moving on… Despite the fact that most folks who track spam numbers say that between 95-97% of all emails sent throughout the world are considered to be spam, there was good news for people who despise getting Viagra erectile dysfunction spam this week… and then today there was bad news.

First, the good news…

Microsoft security report announced that the volume of spam for sexual medications fell a dramatic two-thirds when comparing the first six months of 2008 to the last six months. 

In fact, spam for erectile dysfunction medications such as Viagra was the most popular type of spam message from January to June 2008, comprising a 30% share of the total volume. In the second half of 2008, the volume dropped below 10%.

Helping to make up the difference, however, were non-sexual medication spam messages. These nearly doubled in the second half of 2008. So spam emails for hair products, weight loss, vitamins and everything else non-ED saw a 100 percent increase during the second half of 2008, which means it made up 40 percent of all spam during that time period.

Check out all the interesting details in Lawrence Walsh’s blog posted yesterday.

Despite the drop in ED spam, the spam monster is still apparently live and well, even though spam volume apparently dropped sharply in Novermber when major spam botnets were disabled due to the McColo network being shut down, according to the security folks at Marshal.

And now for the bad news…

An article on Computer World today announced that there could be millions of Windows PCs infected with the Conficker worm, which has turned these PCs into junk mail-spewing robots capable of sending billions of spam messages a day. This is all according to a Russian security company. Some PCs/bots could be sending out 80,000 spam messages in a 24-hour period, it says.

And guess what… all of the spam associated with the Conficker worm is ED-related. One step forward and two steps back apparently.

I guess the point is that if you have a Windows PC, you may want to do a security check every once in a while. I just clicked over to the company that provides the free security/anti-virus software for my PC… and that’s AVG. Guess what’s on the homepage right now… the Conficker virus.

Some of these viruses really are monsters. And so are the companies that power the spambots by providing the spam content in the first place. As mentioned earlier, out of the billions of spam messages sent every week, you will never find one initiated by AccessRx or our processing partner Secure Medical.
