BT Implements "Spam buster" system

BT has deployed an automated "spam buster" system to track down and tackle professional spammers and botnet-infected customers on the BT broadband network.

The "Content Forensics" system supplied by StreamShield Networks scans millions of e-mails a day, providing detailed reports on the location and size of spam-related problems originating from the BT network. This enables the operator to take action, such as terminating rogue accounts and adding offending IP addresses to industry-wide blacklists.
