Spam Fighting Tip: NEVER EVER set your own email address,
or the entire domain of "nckcn.com" in
your Postini filters as an "Approved sender". You are completely
defeating the most important way to stop a spammer from sending to your email address. This is the first, and easiest
way spammers reach email addresses, sending spam from your
email address to your email address. You also want to be very careful with whom you set up as your "Approved Senders", since putting any email address on that list completely defeats, and by-passes, the anti-spam capabilities of
your Postini filters from that address.
Tech Tip: Help Fight SPAM
- Participate in keeping the filters accurate by sending your unfiltered spam messages AS ATTACHMENTS in email to
. This does not guarantee that these messages will be filtered in the future, but will make it more likely. Remember
holidays are especially busy times for
spammers, so be extra cautious!
Social Media Alert – Watch Out For Social Media Spam (And Scams)
In the first half of 2013, spam — the scourge of the Internet
since 1993 — grew by 355 percent across the Internet's most
popular social networks. This is according to data from Nexgate's
State of Social Media Spam Report. It shows that about 1 in 200
social messages contain spam. Facebook and YouTube were the most
infected, containing more spam than other social networks by a
ratio of 100 to 1. Facebook also has the largest number of
phishing attacks — schemes in which a victim's password or credit
card information is hacked.
Social media spam is growing at high rates due to spammers moving
away from email. Why? It's harder to detect spam on social media
sites and spammers can potentially reach millions of people with a
single ad or post. Spammers have also developed a variety of ways
to trick users with appealing visuals beyond the typical spam
What should you do? The Better Business Bureau recommends the

Avoid following unfamiliar or unknown links or pop-up ads.
Make sure to keep up with the latest operating systems, software,
web browsers, antivirus protection and apps for the best defense
against viruses, malware, and other online threats.
Report any possible spam to the appropriate people within the
organization, including network administrators. They can be alert
for any suspicious or unusual activity.
If you believe your financial accounts may be compromised, contact
your financial institution immediately and close the account(s).
Monitor all accounts for suspicious activity.
In addition, when browsing users' profiles or pages, remember that
not everything on these pages may be safe. Despite the circle of
trust that social media sites create, cybercriminals are
constantly lurking behind virtual corners, just waiting for
opportunities to strike..
