Rise of the Spam

Postby Delmont St Xavier » Sat Jun 03, 2017 5:58 pm

Is it me?

It appears that there is an epidemic on spam affecting all sites that I visit as well as emails that I receive. I know these things tend to go in cycles and one month we can be bombarded with crap but it seems much more in your face now that ever.

I see this afternoon we have the opportunity to purchase UK Passports and last week we had the opportunity to employ a professional CV writer and the week before that an Essay writer. My work's email address (being a .org.uk) and part of the third sector is being bombarded as well with offers of pursuing debts or fixing my Microsoft Windows along with a few other shady deals.

Obvioulsy, fire walls and virus guards are updated but it seems that somewhere, someone is sitting hitting thousands of sites. Personally, I blame Trump.... :D :D

Nope not just you. Look at the meltdown in the NHS last month.
Seems to me, no matter how much I update my spam filters, malware screening and anti-virus software, the illegals seem one step ahead....
