Abstract

Spam can be considered as unwanted email. Those emails usually contain
advertisements that can found in postal mailboxes. Although spam generally not
considered as real cyber attack, it may be difficult to differentiate between viruscontaminated
emails. Moreover, spammers slow the servers that receiving legitimate
emails and may cause availability problems. Typical solutions against this problem may
be to filter emails received by using content analysis or blacklists. Hence this project
discusses the usefulness of using homemade honeypots to fight spammers. Sendmail is
used in this project as a decoy to fool spammers. This paper will explain how typical
spammers work, as well as how honeypots could be used to detect spammers, slow
spammers, and stop spammers from such activities.
