So I completely forgot about this project I was working on about Internet security through E-mail.

It was a bonus project I came up with for extra credit. But today I got a notification reminder of it. So turning this in would be a waste, but I thought it was pretty interesting.

You see, it started with me testing an E-mail account that would be left untouched for a year. No E-mails sent, no sign-up involved, no nothing. Just a blank E-mail account with no interest tags by Yahoo or anything.

Well, I wanted to see how much junk, viruses, Any-kind of ware involved. Would be sent to your E-mail. Guess how many I got

Hello: PLCDH31804,
You have 1304 New 40978 Bulk messages in your inbox.

And many thanks to the technicians of the PLC, I scanned each and every one of them while I was in town today doing buisness.

The results are:

6 Viruses that effect Memory Drives. Some of the links were links to previous worms
Hundreds of thousands of Spyware (Majority linked to porno sites )
thousands of corruption data / corrupted
Random Text messages that links to nowhere

So yeah, discuss this.

I don't know what to say other than that's just downright sad.

Have you ever spent days and days and days making up flavors of ice cream that no ones ever eaten before? Like chicken and telephone ice cream?...Green mouse ice cream was the worst.

Wow, that is rather sad. I can't believe how much lack of security there is with emails. Was this with yahoo? Wonder if it's just as bad with others.

This was done on Yahoo, but I have used two other ones, G-Mail, and a serverwide client mail.

G Mail diddnt have squat. And the serverwide client diddnt either. Which goes to show you that I shouldent use Yahoo for my mail anymore

Yeah, even after signing up for shit loads of stuff using my GMail account, I STILL only have 10 junk mail after three months of having it. And half of that is forum notifications from Anime League telling me people replied to a thread I made/a thread I posted in.

Go GMail!
