    Default GIF Based Junk Mail Problem




    I have the fully updated ZA Internet Security Suite
    and I have my message filters set to their most aggressive setting.

    As one person put it better than I: "the spammers have formatted their ad into a gif file so actually there is no text portion of the message which can be used to analyze
    -- it. The subject text appears to be randomly generated words so it is also useless as a source of information to identify the message as spam.
    "

    I have reported this type of spam to ZA
    for over 1/2 a year with no effect.
    Other spammers are catching on, and
    this type of Junk Mail
    getting worse and not better.
    Instead of 2 or 3 messages a week getting through, it's 3 or 4 a day now.

    Is ZA working on getting a handle on this problem?

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite
    Software Version:6.1

    Another poster commented that the new version of Mailfrontier Desktop software has been updated to deal with new types of spam. Perhaps the spam you're getting are part of that.

    Mailfrontier is the technology behind the spam filter in ZA-SS and at the moment it is not using the aforementioned new version. We can only hope that ZoneLabs manage to incorporate this new version into the next release of ZA-SS.
