DOGNÆDIS reveals study about SPAM in Portugal
The research was based on a spam attack simulation, by sending 60 thousand unsolicited electronic messages. All the addresses that received those email messages were gathered on public databases.
Two different servers were used to perform the test, one to send the e-mails and another to allocate the HTML and images . It was also created a domain to host the setup and 3 different types of messages with different case scenarios and levels of credibility.
The goal of each scenario was to measure the different level of liability from the recipients according to the context.
The results revealed that it's relatively easy to cross every protection and alert barrier.
Half the people who opened the fake messages were corporate workers in private companies, 25% public workers and 25% private users.
