2002 Tech Tip: Email Bombing and Spamming
January 2002 • White Paper
This tech tip describes email bombing and spamming.
Email bombing is characterized by abusers repeatedly sending an email message to a particular address at a specific victim site. In many instances, the messages will be large and constructed from meaningless data in an effort to consume additional system and network resources. Multiple accounts at the target site may be abused, increasing the denial of service impact.
