Email spam

Email spam, also known as junk email or unsolicited bulk email (UBE), is a subset of electronic spam involving nearly identical messages sent to numerous recipients by email. Clicking on links in spam email may send users to phishing web sites or sites that are hosting malware. Spam email may also include malware as scripts or other executable file attachments. Definitions of spam usually include the aspects that email is unsolicited and sent in bulk.[1][2][3][4][5] One subset of UBE is UCE (unsolicited commercial email). The opposite of “spam”, email which one wants, is called “ham”, usually when referring to a message’s automated analysis (such as Bayesian filtering).[6] Like other forms of unwanted bulk messaging, it is named for Spam luncheon meat by way of a Monty Python sketch in which Spam is depicted as ubiquitous and unavoidable.[7] (source: Wikipedia)
