Preface

Preface

“Spam is a big problem. People are tired of weeding through tons of useless information, wasting their precious time, and being exposed to a continual barrage of electronic harassment. This book will prove valuable to you in describing the true definition of spam, its origin, and the many techniques and measures in order to prevent it.”

—Christian Kenyeres, consultant

“Do you want to understand spam, email viruses, and all the other mysterious malicious things that go bump in the Internet night? If so, Jeremy Poteet's Canning Spam is the book for you. You'll find more useful info than you ever knew existed, as well as every safe-email tip known to mankind. Once you read this book, you will not only have that wonderful sense of security that comes from knowing what you are doing, you'll be able to hold you own with any of the local neighborhood nerds (not to mention your 12-year-old nephew).”

—Harley Hahn, humorist, computer expert, philosopher, author of Harley Hahn's Internet Yellow Pages

“Unwanted email wastes users' time and employers' money by exploiting both human and technical weakness. Canning Spam combines plain-English descriptions of technical attacks with real-world examples of how and why they work, even when users think they know enough to avoid becoming victims. Until we get to the point that books like this aren't needed, this is one worth recommending to many email users and to every email administrator.”

—Peter Coffee, technology editor, eWEEK

“Canning Spam offers plain-English explanations of how the bad guys work—and real scenarios that give you a heads-up about today's increasingly tricky attacks. Wherever there's a solution, Jeremy Poteet shares it—along with plenty of tips… No, there aren't any “magic bullets.” But all the real ammunition is here.”

—Bill Camarda, Read Only
