Stop replying to spam!

According to a recent survey , one out of six respondants has responded to a spam email, despite suspecting that the message was spam. 12% might seem like a small number, but it's that 12% that sustain the "spam-driven underground economy." Of the individuals who responded to spam, 17% said it was a mistake, 13% didn't know why they responded, 12% were interested in the product or service, and 6% wanted to see what would happen. You might assume that these people must be fairly uninformed about the potential dangers of spam emails, but most claimed to be "very" or "somewhat" experienced with Internet security. However, the survey also exposed a false sense of security among respondants. Most are aware that malware can take over a PC, but 14% believed that this would never happen to them. Research firm Ferris Research commented on this, noting that while some people "might assume that the more technically savvy you are, the less likely you are to be hit by a virus," when in fact, "research indicates that the more you use computers, the more likely you are to get hit by a virus."

Spam is more than just an annoyance, clogging your inbox. Phishing emails can lead to identity theft, and some spam emails contain malware that can cripple your PC. The only way to handle spam emails is to delete them immediately. And be sure to protect your computer from malware with Internet security software. Many of the anti-virus programs reviewed on NextAdvisor.com also offer excellent spam and phishing protection, so if you are interested in learning more, check out our reviews and comparison chart .
