Leading Email Mutation Detection
As spammers work to avoid spam filtering technology, Spam Inspectors Global Learning Network quickly and automatically identifies Mutated Genes in the over 500,000 daily spam reports received by the GIANT Company Learning Servers. Common mutations such as the use of punctuation to obfuscate common word spelling are then targeted by the Spam Inspector to block future emails that by use of mutations attempt to slip through less aggressive and accurate anti-spam packages.
Parental Controls Protecting Users and Children from offensive Email Pornography (SPORN)
Spam Inspectors new PARENTAL CONTROL feature , gives users the power to protect their children and employees by configuring email accounts to automatically delete and hide offensive and graphic images. While many anti-spam packages allow users to scan the messages quarantined as spam, Spam Inspector is the first to provide protection from unwanted viewing of offensive graphics included in blocked spam.
Email Privacy Stopping the unwanted and sometimes illegal spying on users through email.
Once an uncommon technique, 90% of all spam email now includes Web tracking bugs, Web tracking bugs are used so that the spammer can trace the success of their spam, know if spam has been opened, and determine if they have reached a valid or invalid email address. Once the spammer is alerted to the fact that they have reached a valid address, then chances are they will use it again or sell the address to other spammers. Spam Inspector 4.0 automatically removes Web Bugs from incoming emails, and assures the user that their inbox is not being watched.
Email Fraud Protection Automatic response to Phishing.
A disturbing number of emails are being crafted to appear as if they are legitimate payment, auction, or order inquiries, causing unsuspecting email users to hand over their personal information, including credit card and banking numbers, and Social Security numbers, opening them up to identity and credit card theft. Phishing, or scammers setting up fraudulent Web sites that look like those of legit retailers in an attempt to trick unwary consumers into giving up their credit card numbers, has become the number one threat to protecting users Identities, and credit card fraud. Verisigns fraud prevention systems showed that 6.2 percent of e-commerce transactions in the U.S. were potential fraud attempts.
Spam Inspector 4.0s filters automatically respond to FRAUD updates from the GIANT Company Learning Servers, blocking seemingly legitimate looking emails from being allowed into users inboxes protecting users from potential fraudulent losses.
