Secure Computing released a new report on spam trends Friday, among the reports findings, spam citing Gov. Sarah Palin topped her opponent, Sen. Joe Biden, by a ratio of 5 to 4 during the month of September.
In a top-of-the-ticket comparison, spam using the name of Sen. Barack Obama easily topped the use of his opponent, Sen. John McCain, by 6 to 1.
I’m not sure this a race either candidate wants to win though. It just goes show that spammers are continuing to exploit current events to get their message out.
The full report titled “Major Spam Trends, October 2008” is available from Secure Computing’s web site.
